There are four main issues that should be considered when developing an effective FinTech IP strategy. Identifying and protecting your relevant IP, exploiting value in anything you create, avoiding infringement of third party rights and challenging infringement by third parties.
Our IP FinTech Guide covers the key considerations under each of these issues in the UK for the following types of intellectual property:
- Registered designs
- Trade secrets
This guide is a short reference guide intended to provide a few points to keep in mind when creating and commercialising new FinTech products. Note that when launching a new product, it is likely that a single product will involve an intersection of various IP rights, and a host of other legal issues (such as data protection) may be relevant depending on the complexity of the technology you’re developing and using. If you need advice on any of the issues raised in this guide, please do reach out to us.
