Registration of Intellectual Property Rights: Trademarks, Patents, Copyright
The operation of copyrighted and intellectual property items yields sizeable profits in the current business environment, and in IT business in particular. Hence, it is crucial to protect one’s intellectual property.
IT copyright is not restricted to contractual provisions guiding software development and also involves registration of the rights held by your company. By receiving a patent or registering the copyright, you obtain a protective document certifying the preemptive rights, authorship and title to the intellectual property item.
Offering international registration of trademarks and patents, we provide support with formalizing software copyright and give end-to-end guidance on all related issues. SBSB experts will be happy to advise you on any procedures and will assure maximum protection of your rights.
GDPR Compliance & Personal Data Protection
It is highly advisable to attend to appropriate personal data treatment today as there is not a single area of business which does not involve personal data. GDPR is applicable to virtually all businesses operating on the internet and not only there: online stores and services, web portals, messengers and applications and a multitude of other services.
The GDPR — General Data Protection Regulation — is the European Union regulation containing stringent rules for handling personal data binding not only in the EU member states but also in the countries providing services or selling goods to EU residents.
The big question: what may be the implications of non-compliance with the GDPR?
Those failing to meet the GDPR requirements would incur liability — penalties up to 20 million euro, or 4% of the company’s annual revenues (whichever amount is larger). One should keep in mind that both the monitoring of GDPR compliance and the resulting liability will be strict. Thus, the need arises for IT businesses to bring their documents, policies and procedures in line with the new rules.
SBSB will help you adjust personal data handling processes and bring them to conformance with the international legislation and GDPR, assuring effective and safe data collection, identification, confidentiality and, most importantly, protection against heavy fines which would be imposed for failure to comply with regulations.
