Insure Your Idea

by Tom Egelhoff

I'm sure you are all familiar with copyright, patents and trademarks. All protect your ideas in various ways. Even with this protection the burden of proof lays squarely on your shoulders.

The Intellectual Property Law Association (there is an association for everything) reports that the average cost of enforcing a patent is more than $400,000.

In the last few years many inventors and home business developers have turned to "patent abatement insurance." Also called, Infringement Enforcement Insurance, this coverage is available for intellectual property (patents, trademarks and/or copyrights). The policies cover litigation expenses incurred in enforcing the intellectual property against infringers up to the policy limit.

For policy rates, check with your local insurance carrier or click here for more information.
