Security Rights in Intellectual Property in Scotland
- 28 Downloads
Scottish law permits the taking of security over intellectual property rights. Such security takes several forms including assignation. According to Scottish Law, an assignation creates a personal right. A real right can only be created if the assignation is intimated. Apart from this, trade marks and patents can be charged. It is also possible for a trust over intellectual property rights to be created. However, there are problems with such security rights in relation to their creation, priorities and certainty.
