Sheema Khan, VP Intellectual Property at Stratford Managers Corporation, was featured as a guest writer for the Globe and Mail article titled: ‘Identify – and protect – your company’s intellectual property‘.
In her article, Sheema talks about what exactly IP is and why it’s so important to organizations. In the article she demystifies the difference between copyright, trademark, trade secret, trade right, and patents and how each can be used to within an organization.
“If your idea has high commercial value, others will try to copy it and cash in on your hard work. As a registered IP owner, you have legal rights to prevent others from claiming your IP as their own. However, without proper registration of your IP, you leave yourself open to financial loss and encroachment.”
