Branding and Copyright
Charity trustees have a duty to safeguard the assets of their charity. Many do not, however, take steps to protect one of their most valuable assets, which is the name. The use and misuse of intellectual property can have a devastating effect on the image of the charity and also its ability to raise funds.
Everys charity solicitors and intellectual property lawyers work together to help you take the necessary formal steps to protect the name, logo and other intellectual property of the charity. Trustees are advised to consider any use of their name by sponsors to protect both their income and image should something go wrong.
Our charity specialists have experience of protecting and licensing intellectual property to safeguard rights and to raise revenue for charity clients of all sizes.
