IP Talk: How not to get ripped off
Protect your most valuable assets – your ideas. Once your ideas are made public, other people can be inspired by them. But inspiration can become copying and others can profit. This seminar teaches you how to protect your ideas and capitalise on them, exploring areas such as copyright, design rights and trademarks.
