How to Protect Yourself Against Intellectual Theft?

Even if you aren’t a writer, a painter or a musician, you still have your own kind of intellectual property that you might need to protect from theft and that’s what we’re here to help you out with. Normally, when we talk about intellectual property, we think about creative works like music, ideas for a piece of writing or some work of art. These things are often stolen and the thief will try to either sell them to someone so that they can pretend that it’s their work or they’ll do it themselves.

Some people just want the glory and they don’t care if that glory doesn’t even belong to them as long as everyone else thinks that it was them who came up with it. Even if you don’t write or do art of any kind, there are still things that people can steal from you and take credit for. These days, we end up posting literally everything we see and do on social media and we do it without any patents or trademarks, which leaves our personal posts available to the public or those who we have added on our friends lists (we just keep adding people, don’t we?)

This might not seem like a big deal but one day you might find someone else photo shopped into one of your pictures from your vacation with your family. These things can be trouble down the road and should never be taken lightly, which is why you should make sure that your privacy settings are in place and if anything like this even happens to you, don’t be afraid to reach out to Incubate IP Attorneys for help. No matter what it is and how they got a hold of it, it’s still your intellectual property.
