Research & IP Control
Your secret is safe with us
Research & IP control is extremely important to all of the Papa Bravo team, recognising the importance of Intellectual Property is at the heart of what do everyday. As a standard procedure, we enter into non-disclosure agreements with all our clients. Furthermore, our employees are also bound by non-disclosure agreements to ensure that the intellectual property rights of our clients are protected.
It is important that thorough research is conducted into a variety of areas related to the design brief. This research forms the underpinnings of any sound and thorough design project directing its concepts and providing solutions, justification and answers to issues that inevitably crop up throughout the course of a project.
We undertake a broad range of research projects specifically focusing on your target markets, your competitor products, why customers buy from you (and also why they don’t), relevant iconic products, trends, fashions and specific manufacturing technologies that we believe will give you the competitive edge.
You might think your intellectual property (IP) is original, but without a worldwide patent search, you won’t know for sure. It’s not just about whether you can get a patent, it’s about knowing if you’re even allowed to start selling in your key markets.
There are various types of protection that you can take out on your IP. These include patents, trademarks and registered designs. We can assist you in searching for competing IP, understanding how this might affect your project and drafting the applications.
