In today’s knowledge-based and globalized economy, a company’s intellectual property assets form a great deal of business value. And while the internet has opened enormous opportunities for businesses to communicate their brand messages, it also created a fertile ground for intellectual property abuse.

Businesses cannot entirely rely on standard legal precautionary measures to battle brand abuse online but search for proactive intellectual property monitoring and protection solutions.
