This workshop with the Intellectual Property Office gives an overview of IP & how it can impact on businesses within the digital industry.
Most successful businesses, large or small, are built on well-managed intangible assets or Intellectual Property (IP).
Digital businesses create and use intellectual property all the time, perhaps without realising it. Whether it is the name of your company, the look of a new character in your game, the code of your new programme, or even a more functional searching algorithm, the value of your IP can far outweigh the value of your physical assets
The Intellectual Property Office (IPO) helps businesses, innovators and entrepreneurs understand how IP can create value from their ideas, turning inspiration into sustainable business success.
Attendees will gain a good understanding of different types of IP, what IP they already have and how to protect their assets. Participants on this course will be able to:
Describe the different types of IP available
Explain the difference between registered and unregistered IP
Understand what IP is within their business and see the potential value of it
Explain the benefits of incorporating IP within a business strategy
Discuss IP issues with more knowledge and confidence
Identify potential IP issues
Know where and when to seek further advice
The IPO is the government body responsible for IP rights in the UK, promoting innovation by providing a clear, accessible and widely understood IP system.
