Companies can limit liability and protect their valuable IP assets by strategically using holding companies and operating companies. In the case of an IP holding model, the parent company creates a 100% subsidiary and then transfers ownership of its intellectual property to the newly created holding company. A holding company is essentially an entity that controls and holds the assets of the group, such as patents, trademarks, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets and proprietary information. Conversely, an operating company takes over day-to-day operations and does not own any of the IP assets. To some extent, the assets of an operating entity may be protected by a single unit and leases, loans and mortgage rights, as well as by the use of a separate holding company. This is an example of multi-layer protection. In addition, the holding company can lend money to the operating company to buy other business assets, but it should guarantee the mortgage guarantees with pledge rights that go to the holding company. Again, the assets are secured because the holding company is a holder of priority pledge rights and the vulnerable cash is taken from the operating company by repayment of credit. Now that you`ve set up your business structures, you can start protecting assets. I hope that this brief document will be interesting and valuable.
It should be clear now that a number of political, financial, cultural, technical and legal issues must be taken into account when an IP holding company is first set up and such a unit is managed properly and professionally. To ensure that all developed IP addresses of your applications are safe and strong, you can set up an alternating business structure so that all intellectual property is safely kept in your holding company.
