Learn how intellectual property can protect you and help you profit from your business idea.
An understanding of intellectual property and its protection is vital for anyone with an idea, whether it’s a business, an invention, a brand name or a song.
This session will introduce the various areas of intellectual property and help you understand which ones may apply to you and your business. The session provides a basic introduction to patents, trade marks, registered designs, copyright, know how and trade secrets.
