Businesses Need ‘More Support’ to Protect their Intellectual Property


The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) is calling on the Government to do more to promote awareness of its Intellectual Property services, after new research found that firms are struggling to protect their ideas and inventions.

According to the FSB, some 25% of firms polled with intellectual property rights have experienced some kind of breach or violation of these rights in the last five years. Furthermore, a third of those questioned claimed that between 75% and 100% of their revenue was reliant on the strength of their IP.
