Intellectual Property Investigations
Our economy thrives when people and companies create new and innovative products and services. Corporations and inventors invest time, energy and funding in the research and development of products and the subsequent marketing of those products. These organizations and individuals are protected by intellectual property laws – the exclusive legal rights to market and control these valuable intangible assets.
Intellectual property fraud is widespread and growing. Corporations need protection against all three types of IP fraud – trademark, patent and copyright infringements. However, few firms offer services to combat these specific types of fraud. These cases are pervasive, but IP infringement can be very challenging to pursue and prove. ICS Merrill, the investigative services division of EMSI, offers targeted services designed to stop IP fraud.
