Frequently Asked Questions
Intellectual property (IP) refers to ideas & creations of one’s imagination that give birth to inventions, art, literature, designs, images, symbols & names. Intellectual property is what helps make a company or brand unique, stand out & be distinguishable from another.
The main types are trademarks, copyrights, patents & trade secrets. Each relates to a unique area of IP that is protectable in different ways. Trademarks, copyrights & patents may be registered to record ownership. The process to record rights to include what, when & how it may be registered, varies by jurisdiction.
Examples are many of the iconic names, symbols & phrases that you associate with your favorite product or brand, whether Nike’s swoosh & “Just Do It” or McDonald’s Golden Arches. More unusual examples of intellectual property include colors like Tiffany Blue, sounds like the one between scenes on Law & Order, or scent like the smell of Play-Doh.
IP investigations are cases related to potential intellectual property, like trademarks, trade dress, copyrights, or design & utility patents.
IP investigators are private investigators who specialize in intellectual property cases. From their relevant knowledge & experience, they will have a comprehensive understanding of the evidence that often makes or breaks these types of cases – & are likely to offer more value to positively impact the outcome. In any field, there are intrinsic benefits of collaborating with subject matter experts.
Vaudra helps companies & brands protect their IP by compiling evidence to defend a trademark owner’s intellectual property rights. You don’t know what you don’t know.

In a world where the unscrupulous are eager to profit from your ideas, you need help to retain & protect the value of those assets. Whether involving attorneys, law enforcement, other service providers or (ideally) a combination, investigators are an invaluable resource to incorporate.
One will flounder without the other. Brand protection is a comprehensive term for the process & actions rights owners take to protect their intellectual property (IP). Registering intellectual property is critical to make brand protection possible.
