An Intellectual Property Holding Company (IPHC) at RAK ICC is a subsidiary or sister company of global corporations that is set up to hold the companies’ IP (e.g. patents, trademarks, copyrights, etc.)
The intellectual property (IP) associated with a business name or system can be one of its most valuable assets – but only if it is properly protected. Any business that wishes to establish a national or international identity should take steps to protect the use of its name, logo or other IP, such as patent rights, formulae/processes, designs, trademarks, franchises, license agreements, “know-how” and copyrights. Given the importance of IP, RAK ICC offers IP holding structures that protect your IP platform and provide you with a range of IP holding benefits.
