When a new first intends to start operating in any area, then it should be registered and any form of protection sought. The starting point in this case is registering the company in the registrar of companies. Here, the registrar will see if there is such a company registered with the same venture. After this, all new ideas and properties of the venture should be protected by having a patent right or a copyright showing that such a knowledge exclusively belongs to you. All in all, the firm should never interfere with the patent rights of other firms otherwise it will face legal suits on the same.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
