Welcome to the IP Collector


When conducting business on a global scale there are instances when cooperating parties may breach or partially breach their obligations. This may cause a delay or refusal of payment which would have been negotiated between said parties. These instances are common in all areas of the businesses, including intellectual property.

IP Collector is a project aimed at preventing clients from brokering deals with companies/individuals who behave unlawfully and disregard financial obligations. This Internet resource helps intellectual property companies avoid possible complications during the fulfillment of agreements regarding intellectual property protection. IP Collector maintains a list of companies/individuals which have failed to fulfill their obligations before IP attorneys, thus preventing additional companies' similar negative experiences.
