Capturing Intellectual Property Workshop
This workshop steps you through the process of capturing intellectual property. We explain what intellectual property is, why it is so important to write down ideas, and how ideas can be used to make money and prevent employees starting competitive businesses. In addition, make a list of your intellectual property and inventing questions to bring to the class. Discussion will be collegial and questions are strongly encouraged. This class has been delivered over 200 times, so there will always be breathing space for questions and answers.
- What is intellectual property (IP)
- The forms and functions of legal IP protections
- The IP system and its functioning (on one slide)
- Capturing an invention
- Checking the invention for enablement
- How to capture invention if you work in a big company
