Putrajaya – Surprisingly the trend of copying and claiming another’s original idea or product to be theirs is increasing nowadays, and it’s certainly not something one should be proud of. A validated idea or a product created by an individual is not only something that’s created out of their experience, but it’s also something they have thought about thoroughly and it’s their achievement of either fixing or enabling something that will help other people. What happens when someone else steals these ideas and then takes credit for them, as their own?
We live in a world that enables the sharing of ideas instantly across many platforms and portfolios that can be accessed by anyone, at any time, and anywhere in the world. Which is why protecting your ideas and brands is both very important and vital. People tend to have ownership of their ideas, intellectually, but they can’t figure out a way to keep their ideas safe and protected from others.
Many people will have great ideas, but what separates those who can turn their ideas into money from those who cannot, is a strategy to denote the idea strongly enough so that it can become a virtue that can ultimately be protected. Each innovation or brand should have their own uniqueness to differentiate it from being something merely incidental. Either way, if you’re an idealistic person but you have no idea on how to keep your ideas protected, then a patent attorney is what you need.
