Intellectual Property (IP) is protection for creativity and innovation. An understanding of IP and its protection is important for anyone with an idea, whether it’s an invention, design, brand name, literary work or a song. This session will give you the knowledge to identify the IP assets contained within your business and how best to protect them. The session will cover the four main types of IP protection – copyright, patents, trademarks and designs.
