Can I protect my intellectual property on my own?
Certain types of Intellectual Property enjoy automatic protection (e.g. copyright in most jurisdictions), however, in order to protect the rest of intellectual property forms, especially Industrial Property, like trademarks and patents, it is necessary to select one of the intellectual property protection types (usually a form of registering your industrial property object with a national or international register). Without specialized knowledge, it is never advised to seek for legal protection on your own. Instead to avoid misunderstandings leading to intellectual property protection failure specialized advice should be sought.
