Digital Signature for Trademark and Patent Registration under the Intellectual Property Right (IPR) helps to protect your intellectual property like a patent, trademark, and copyright, etc.
Rights for Intellectual Property(IP) have been conceptualized so that creators, innovators, and explorers can patent their discoveries and inventions. Moreover, the laws governing patents, rights, and trademarks ensure that inventors receive financial benefits for what they have created/invented, besides gaining recognition in their field.
