For trademark and copyright holders, securing your digital assets is a priority for several reasons:
Intellectual property protection can reduce financial losses due to unauthorized sellers, gray market goods, and pricing violations.
Intellectual property monitoring ensures that your brand's reputation remains untarnished by preventing others from using your intellectual property without permission.
Manually enforcing your intellectual property can be a time-consuming and resource-intensive task. Automating many aspects of the process will make it more efficient and cost-effective.
Bad actors can infringe your Intellectual Property rights using a wide range of deceptive techniques:
Bad actors may use your brand's logos, design elements, catalog images, or trademarks on products, packaging, ads, or advertising materials to deceive consumers into believing they are purchasing genuine products or services.
Impersonators often create fake websites or social media profiles that closely mimic your brand's online presence. These deceptive platforms are used to steal sensitive customer information, spread malware, or redirect potential customers away from your legitimate channels.
Counterfeit goods can be sold through various channels, including online marketplaces, unauthorized retail stores, fraudulent multi-brand fake sites, and even on social media platforms, misleading unsuspecting customers and causing substantial financial harm to your brand.

How can you protect intellectual property rights with an intellectual property protection software?
Managing and protecting your intellectual property is crucial so that you can protect and maximize the value of your brand and prevent revenue leakage. There are several strategies businesses implement to prevent bad actors from benefiting financially from their inventions, brands, or products.
1- Register for different intellectual properties
Registering your brand’s intellectual properties is one of the best and most effective ways to protect it. This can include trademarking the brand name, logo, designs, slogans, and any other words.
You should also copyright your original product images and any other creative works that uniquely distinguish your brand.
2- Make your branding unique
By doing so it decreases the chances of intellectual property theft. This can be achieved by creating more complex logos and unique designs.
3- Leveraging Intellectual Property Software Solutions
Red Points’ Intellectual Property Protection Software Solutions utilize artificial intelligence to automatically detect and remove online counterfeits. With the help of machine learning tools, such as keyword generation and image recognition our intellectual property protection software is able to process the information retrieved across over 100 online marketplaces, websites, and social networks to detect fakes, piracy, or sellers online and allow our customers to take enforcement actions.
What are the most common violations of intellectual property?
Violations of intellectual property can come in the form of a scam, or fraud, through the unlawful use of one or more elements of a brand’s intellectual property (IP) assets, such as trademarks, copyrighted works, patents, and others.
Here are some examples of common violations of intellectual property brand owners should keep an eye out for:
– Lookalike websites passing off as official outlets
– Also known as typosquatting, URL hijacking involves targeting people on the internet who incorrectly type a website’s domain name in the browser
– Wrongful usage of a brand’s logo, copyright images, or brand name to mislead consumers into buying fake goods
– Intellectual Property infringements on social media where fraudulent profiles use trademarks or copyrighted material to represent a brand
– Intellectual Property infringements in mobile app marketplaces and third-party sites where fraudulent apps install malware designed to steal user credentials for harmful purposes or misrepresent your brand.
Protecting intellectual property software and services can help automatically find and remove any instances of IP infringements to protect your customers and profits.
