Every business has aspects of intellectual property which need to be addressed. The key is being as practical as possible in doing so. When I put on my legal hat, I can tell clients what sorts of intellectual property protection are possible. However, I have worked in the business world and as an in-house lawyer, so I know it is important to put on a business hat, too – to see what makes the most sense when the client considers the budget and the long-term business objectives.
