Description

Workshop Objectives

Intellectual property rights are powerful rights, but many people do not know what they are or how they are created. Our workshop will raise awareness of, and improve understanding around, intellectual property rights and how these are relevant to business. The workshop will cover what intellectual property is, how different types of intellectual property rights are created, how they can be protected and where, how they can be exploited and how they can provide a competitive edge. We will explore the potential consequences of infringing third party intellectual property rights and provide guidance as to how these risks can be minimised. Attendees will gain an understanding of the value that intellectual property rights can add to a business and the importance of ensuring these rights are protected at an early stage.
