Welcome to the course “A complete guide on how to build an IP database using Asana”
This course was designed to build your own intellectual property (IP) database to store all the information for your assets in a way that will allow you to manage them properly.
You will learn how to use one of the most well-known project management applications Asana to build your database, without the need to hire experts or to pay for specialized software.
Why is having such a database important?
Without a database the protection of your patents, trademarks, designs, domains, copyrights, etc. can be jeopardized, which in turn can lead to lost profit and business opportunities or even legal conflicts.
What is the chance this of this happening?
What is typical for the contemporary economy is the predominant importance of intangible assets as a competition tool that can give every company a market advantage. According to many research, intangible assets represent 80% of the companies value in developed countries.
In most of the cases, these intangible assets are different intellectual property rights such as patents for inventions, trademarks, copyrights, designs, domain names, copyrights, etc.
Intellectual property is an asset for every company and can be the main reason for a company's success or failure. This is crucial in particular for startups and entrepreneurs because it can represent their sole market advantage.
In light of this, monitoring and management of all available intellectual property assets in one company is vital for its development.
Intellectual property protection requires some actions to be done in compliance with the law. That is to say, dealing with different procedures, negotiations, deadlines which will allow this protection to be granted.
Because of this, the information for all intellectual property rights has to be stored and managed in one database with easy access for daily monitoring.
This will help the intellectual property owner to know all the developments and deadlines and based on that to take the necessary decisions.
Without such a database, the existence of a company's intellectual property can be jeopardized.
