Digital Work Results & Rights
Digital work creates digital or “virtual” work results, which can be copied in unlimited quantity without much effort. Companies must safeguard and protect the work results of their employees and freelancers. The legal regulations for this – in particular the copyright law, the law of employee invention and also the new Trade Secrets Act – are often rudimentary and to some extent inconvenient. In many cases, your company must first take measures to ensure that these regulations are applied at all.
Companies therefore need an overarching concept for handling and securing work results. This concerns organisational issues, suitable contract design and considerations as to how work results can be protected by intellectual property rights such as patents or designs, or as a trade secret for the company.
Only if you carefully protect your rights to digital work results, you can market them as your own products: A company can only exploit rights that belong to it legally. We will assist you with this process.
