It is practically impossible today for any business to thrive without a digital marketing and social media strategy. A vital aspect of public relations, business development, sales, digital marketing, and social media are all areas which require a company to consider how it is identifying, owning, and aggressively protecting the IP inherent in major and high-performance brands. These concerns include identification of innovation not yet registered and licensed and carefully designed trade manuals and business guides regarding the use of such IP.
