What is the purpose of intellectual property risk management?
Intellectual Property (“IP”) risk management provides the developer and licensee peace of mind. The basic premise of the agreement is to protect the licensee in case there is an unexpected disruption with their product, program or service. Developers and licensees trust InnovaSafe as a neutral third party to protect their proprietary material and administer the agreement in an equitable manner.

What type of intellectual property or technology should be protected?
Generally, IT managers or IP attorneys may consider source code as the only type of IP to be protected, but that’s simply not the case. The following is a list of IP works that need to be protected –>
- Proprietary Source Code
- Lab Notebooks
- Ideas, outlines and plans
- Foundational documentation
- Anything that is proprietary in nature
Why should you use InnovaSafe?
Well, that depends. If you’re the developer, having an intellectual property (“IP”) risk management agreement shows your client that you believe in your product and that you want a long-term relationship with them. If you’re the licensee, you want your mission critical technology investment to be protected, 24/7 account access, and verification of the deposited media. If you are a lender and the loan you are making is asset backed and secured by the borrower’s intellectual property, you will want to implement an agreement to provide for access to the intellectual property if the borrower fails to meet certain requirements.
