Join Karen Maclean-Yuille and Kate Mckinley from HISEZ for this informal networking lunch that will consider the topic of Intellectual Property Rights and opportunities for your social enterprise. Karen and Kate will be joined by Ewan MacAulay from Highlands and Islands Enterprise who will give a brief talk on IPR.
This will cover 3 main themes: Identifying, capturing and protecting the hidden jewels which exist in every organisation. Find out how to protect and strengthen your brand through copyright, trade mark and design registration supported by domain names and social media accounts.
If you have something clever which you have developed, or plan to develop, or you intend to do something different, including collaboration, then you need to know how to protect it so that you can commercialise it. On the other hand, can you use other organisations product or service names, material or ideas without their permission?
An interesting discussion to be had. Come and join us and share your thoughts on IPR or any aspect of managing a social enterprise. And did we mention lunch is free too!
This event is brought to you in association with Just Enterprise.
