Event description
Every Business Owns Intellectual Property - What Do You Own?
Do you think about your intellectual property (IP)? Do you understand whether you should protect your IP?
Having the right type of IP protection helps you to stop people stealing or copying the names of your products or brands, your inventions, the design or look of your products and the things you write, make or produce.
A company’s IP is often their most important asset. If used well, IP can offer a solid platform for any business to grow. So how you plan, manage and protect your ideas should be a crucial feature in your business planning and yet IP is often not considered and under-protected!
This workshop aims to give participants a good overview of IP (patents, trade marks, designs and copyright) and how to apply this information to their business. The audience is broken up into small teams and presented with a series of scenarios in which IP is crucial to a business. Once the teams have discussed the scenarios, the Intellectual Property speaker will take them through the answers to the problem.
So if you’re wondering what IP is, what you own and how you could protect it come along to our workshop.
