website relates generally to what Southern Cross does for technology-based
companies in regard of their intellectual property.
Intellectual property (IP) refers to property which is subject to
patents, industrial designs, lay-out designs of integrated circuits,
trademarks, geographical indications, protection of new varieties
of plants, copyright and related rights, protection of undisclosed
information and –in a broader sense– to control of anti-competitive
(i.e. unfair trade) practices.
Briefly, our services relate to checking on the availability of
required IP rights, procuring such rights, guarding their scope
and effectiveness, and maintaining and enforcing these rights –all
to the end of increasing our clients' earnings from their IP.
