The CIPC IP Market Place is a public site where buyers and sellers are introduced to each other.

CIPC is not involved in negotiations, transactions and agreements that take place beyond the introductory stage.
Therefore CIPC can not be held responsible for any disputes between parties that were introduced to each other on this site.

CIPC offers access to patent register information for buyers to satisfy themselves about the ownership and content of listed/ advertised patented intellectual property rights. Users are advised to make use of this facility.

Furthermore, CIPC recommendas that professional advice be sought to ensure legal protection on the transactions or agreements and also to establish potential value of advertised IP assets.

The valuation model provided herein is for guidance purposes only and does not replace the requirement for professional assistance.

Although CIPC does not recommend any specific service provider, a list of registered patent attorneys is provided for the convenience of site users.

CIPC do not involve themselves in any way either as referee or advisor in transactions or consultations between parties.
