We believe in the value of Ideas

We are a group of lawyers and engineers operating for more than ten years in the IP field. We help our clients with patents, trademarks, copyright, software protection, defense against unfair competition and privacy.

Italy is a country of imaginative people and we are famous for fashion and furniture designs.

Some of the most celebrated inventions in the world were made by Italians. These are only some examples:

  • Radio
  • Telephone
  • Moka
  • Microchip
  • Even the real American Jeans

However, Italians are also not keen to protect their creations that often end up to be shamelessly copied in other countries. Without an appropriate preliminary protection, after the plagiarism it becomes hard to be protected in courts.

Why authors do not protect their inventions?

This happens because the regulation seems complex (and it really is) and the cliché that the patent of a technical solution, the registration of a trademark, etc are useless and unnecessary actions has become viral.

On the contrary, especially today, ideas treasure a huge potential that may really bring incredible profit to its creator.

Just think to digital startup such as Snapchat, quoted 33 billion dollars on March 2, 2017. How much does the trademark Apple value? Or the copyright related to Harry Potter. What would have happened if the software was not protected, the trademark registered or the copyright well exercised? How much money would have been wasted.

I assure you that we saw a lot of people, with really amazing ideas, because they have not well protected their creations. And this is not fair.

We want all authors to reap the benefits of their talent

For this reason, our mission is to make authors, inventors, companies programmers and designers know their rights in order to help them to protect their creations.

For this purpose, we decided to realize the UfficioBrevetti.it website so that everyone will know the specific knowledge of the experts in the field in what concerns the regulation of patents, trademarks, design, copyright and software.

In this way, we can help people make simple actions that can really make the difference in protecting their idea.

Differently from the others, our website is essentially informative and makes a lot of materials, particular cases of study and free guides in digital format which can be downloaded in the dedicated section.
