In 2017, TM Eye in association with the Society of British and International Design announced a collaboration to protect the intellectual property of an owners commercial idea, the initiative was launched at the House of Commons.
The initiative uniquely protects IP rights owners from criminal theft and duplication by providing evidence, preparation and the results to obtain a criminal prosecution, seize reproduced copies and fakes, shut down distribution and manufacturing operations as well as the business activities of the offender/s without cost to the victim, the IP owner and creator of commercial ideas.
Obtaining a criminal conviction for IP theft against offenders was the missing final step that all previous IP protection initiatives failed to provide. IP owners are notoriously either unequipped or financially unable to gather evidence and present the case to prosecute brazen criminals.
This first to market initiative provides the much needed solution to business owners, creatives and IP owners whose business through their commercial ideas generates income, boosts the UK economy, provides jobs and substantially contributes to what makes Britain Great.
