Untangling the intangible: exploring how Intellectual Property Rights can help your business grow and prosper
Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) can be essential for protecting a creative idea, a memorable brand, or a great product. However, there is much confusion out there regarding what can be protected and how. This seminar puts the spotlight on the different types of IPRs and how they can be used to protect your business. With software-based businesses being at the heart of London’s fast expanding tech scene, this seminar focuses on protecting software including considerations regarding how copyright, which requires no registration, can help your business and how the master of all IPRs, patents, can be used to protect software in the UK, Europe and beyond. Finally, the seminar will provide guidance regarding how to develop a cost-effective worldwide IP strategy that puts your business in the best place as you start to consider expanding globally.
