It’s a common misconception in the games industry that IP rights take too long and cost too much to secure to be worth pursuing. Often, ignoring your IP is a much more costly mistake.
IP rights are assets which add value to your company and can attract potential investors. You can also licence, sell or mortgage your IP to ensure that you receive a fair return for your creative efforts. Such benefits usually far outweigh the initial expense of securing IP rights.
