Registration 09.30 - 10.00


3. IP MATTERS


IP Matters provides an introduction for those who would like to understand more about Intellectual Property. During the training we will review the type of protection available such as patents, trademarks, design, copyright, know how and when to keep know how secret. We will also look at how to understand other people’s patents by reviewing patent documents already published, consider how to carry out a basic prior art search, a trademark availability search, and show how to navigate patent office websites to determine legal status of third party IP. Attendees will gain an understanding of how to protect their own innovations, in order to build an IP portfolio.

Attendees will be limited in number so there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and consider specific topics in more detail. We encourage attendees to arrive in time for lunch which will also give further opportunities to discuss IP issues with the experts and to learn from other’s experiences. UK IPO will be present on the day to help with specific patent, design and trademark filing questions.

Attendees should bring a laptop or tablet in order to participate in the practical sessions.
