INNOVATION INHERENTLY MEANS IP QUESTIONS & NEEDS

GInI has taught you all about Innovation.  And since that time your organization has been hard at work conceiving, defining, researching, validating, justifying, and executing select new innovation efforts.

But you’re encountered a number of questions regarding the Intellectual Property status of your new innovations… questions that require research into the prior art landscape, your freedom-to-operate, and your opportunities to secure new patents, trademarks, and copyrights.

You need IP research services, but you don’t have a large budget for this.  Where do you turn?

You turn to GInI and its partner Sagacious IP.

GInI has partnered with the global IP Research Service firm Sagacious IP to provide GInI’s Corporate and Council Members with free and discounted access to IP research services and IP consultations.
