Ai AND IP INFRINGEMENT RISKS

Share  

The design industry is reporting how corporate retailers are using Ai to scoop up and freely distribute new online designs from freelance fashion designers. SME’s are losing jobs. It’s not just designers who are now at risk. If you are involved in publishing website content, trademark logos, new product designs, unique business processes, or any innovations then Ai dragnets may be heading your way too.

 

Unwitting suppliers are receiving cease and desist letters from competitor lawyers seeking financial compensation for alleged copyright infringement on their websites. Website designers who use Ai content can put their clients in the firing line for serious infringement penalties. Ai is about to become a feeding frenzy for law firms. So what can you do to protect yourself?

 

Explicit designation of IP protection helps. Clarify your IP ownership with clearly marked © Copyright and ® Registered Trademarks and Designs. Include a clear statement that infringements can result in legal action and that Registered trademark and design infringements can result in criminal prosecutions.

 

Published statistics show alarming risks for small enterprises. UK employs over one million persons involved in the creative industries with over £100 billion annual revenues at stake. Over 95% of businesses are SME’s yet less than 5% register their IP. One in three SME’s suffers infringement losses. A single trademark or design infringement can result in a claim for over £100,000

 

Registered protections are affordable. Trademark registration fees start at £170 for 10 years protection, and design registration fees start at £50.
