Intellectual Property Seminar

Wednesday 28th September 2016, 12pm (Lunch provided)

Conference Rooms - Birmingham Research Park

BizzInn Associate advisors Harrison Goddard Foote, will be delivering a session on Intellectual Property. They offer one-to-one and group advice on registering, controlling, protecting and exploiting IPR through patenting, trade-marks, design registrations.

 Intellectual property (IP) is an intangible property that is the result of creativity and innovation and which can be owned in a similar way to physical property. The protection of the IP inherent in any new idea/ innovation is a crucial part of the process of developing economic impact from an idea as, without ownership of IP, gaining external investment in the project will be very difficult.

IP covers a number of different forms including patents, copyright, design rights and trademarks and these are all covered by different processes and requirements.

The aim of this seminar will be to explain how to identify what IP is protectable and to outline the processes relating to these different forms.

The seminar will be delivered by Dr Chris Moore, partner with patent attorney Harrison Goddard Foote.  Chris has advised individuals, SMEs, multinationals and academic institutions on uncovering, obtaining and protecting and leveraging their intellectual assets. Chris is mentioned and personally recommended in the major patent attorney ratings lists, including Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners, in which he was ranked in band 1 (the highest) of patent attorneys in the latest guide.

Chris holds a PhD from the University of Birmingham in physical chemistry, an MSc in spectroscopy from the UEA and a first degree in environmental chemistry from UEA. Chris is also a member of the Joint Examination Board for the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys.
