Introduction:

Every company creates intellectual property but without always realising it. In today’s knowledge-based economy, intellectual property is a strategic and essential asset that ensures the development and durability of a company. It is important to protect this asset by creating registered intellectual property rights.

Intellectual Property in Luxembourg sets out the legal aspects and tax advantages, together with practical action points on how to implement an intellectual property strategy within a company. The book explains the tax and other advantages of Luxembourg, a place where innovation and entrepreneurship are valued and encouraged.

Readers can use this as a practical guide to fully optimise the management of their IP rights.
