Intellectual Property Portfolios
Intellectual property is a valuable asset that often gets overlooked in the hectic schedule of everyday business. Intellectual property is an asset that is included in the company's "balance sheet" and provides additional, if not the primary, valuation to the company.
This value-added asset can be sold, bought and traded as a part of everyday commerce. Intellectual property includes patents, trademarks, service marks, copyrights, and trade secrets.
It is important for a company to know what, if any, intellectual property it has and how to enhance the company's intellectual property position.
MVS Solutions Incorporated (MVS) will provide instruction and assistance in developing an intellectual property portfolio and program that is designed for your company's specific needs.
