How the IP Manifest can help
There are many potential pitfalls when managing digital IP. Third party licences, employment contracts, trademarks, copyright to name just a few. But what if you could detail the complexities of your IP in a simple but comprehensive way that didn’t take you away from the core business of content development for any length of time? Good IP housekeeping will help your company grow. Extend your confidence as a creative craftsperson so that you intuitively know that your IP housekeeping is in order.
The IP Manifest toolset has been carefully designed to help you do just that – it’s an efficient way of helping you map and monitor your own company’s IP landscape and secure investment. What’s more, it’s completely free thanks to funding from the Intellectual Property Office. We’ve consulted with experts from across the games development and finance communities to ensure the IP Manifest serves everybody’s purpose well.
Housekeeping made easy
