ICT KTN Online Business Essential Clinics #9: IP Basics for Technology Businesses
Wednesday, 18 July 2012 from 18:00 to 21:00 (BST)
London, United Kingdom
Intellectual Property Rights (or IPRs) come in lots of different shapes and sizes and can exist in any form of creative contribution you or any members of your team make to the technology, content, branding or other materials that are core to your business. This ICT KTN clinic will focus on the value of intellectual property as an asset and what you, as an early stage tech business, need to do to acquire, protect and maintain rights in any intellectual property that you generate. In addition, we will look at what steps you should take when acquiring or licensing intellectual property from third parties. There are some simple things that you can do which will allow you to maximise the value of your intellectual property and ensure that when it comes to securing investment (or maybe even exiting your business) that you are in a position to realise that value. Intellectual property will often be the most valuable asset held by early stage tech businesses and as a result, investors will always want to investigate whether an investee company's intellectual property is properly protected before they invest. Therefore, in the final part of this session, we will look at the measures which early stage companies can take in order to prepare their intellectual property arrangements for due diligence and investment.
The presenters for the evening will be Ciaran Hickey, Nav Sunner and Gurminder Panesar from Wiggin LLP, a specialist law firm in for the Media industry.
Doors open at 6.00pm for a 6.30pm start, please arrive in good time so as not to disrupt the presentation. Drinks and snacks will be provided as we appreciate you'll probably have been working hard all day. If you have any questions relating to the series please contact Caroline Heron at email@example.com.
