About this event

As you build your business, you’re creating so much! From the words in your website, to your brand name and logo, your products themselves, new inventions perhaps – even the look of your packaging. In this workshop, we’ll give a brief overview of the different types of Intellectual Property (IP), then focus in on Designs. It’s never too early to start thinking about your IP, and a little planning now can help stave off problems in the future.

In this 30-minute session, we’ll look at Registered Designs, which you can use to protect the look of a product - appearance, shape, configuration or decoration.

We'll cover:

  • types of Intellectual Property (IP)
  • the design registration process
  • searching for existing designs
  • unregistered designs

By the end of this session, you’ll be better placed to consider whether design registration is likely to be right for you and your business, and possible next steps.

This is a Zoom webinar - details will be sent to you 24 hours before the session via email.

The session will be recorded for BIPC Devon's archive. You are free to leave your cameras on or turn them off as you prefer. There will be a chance to ask questions throughout the session, which you can do by using the Zoom chat function or your microphone.
