Description

Protect your business as you grow internationally with this workshop on IP abroad from the Intellectual Property Office

Foreign   trade has been a cornerstone of the British economy and Roughly 1 in 5 small   UK businesses export. Exporters achieve 59% faster productivity growth than   non-exporters.

Along   with great possibilities exporting can also bring a number of problems and   issues. Understanding these issues is   key to making the most out of exporting. One of those key issues to get right   is Intellectual Property.

Businesses create and use   intellectual property all the time, perhaps without realising it. The Value of your IP whether it’s a trade   mark, patent, design, copyright or trade secret can far outweigh the value of   your physical assets

This   workshop will explore the world of IP both at home and abroad and go through   some of the key benefits and pitfalls of IP when exporting.

Participants on this course will learn how to to:

  • Describe the different types of IP and identify them within their  business.

  • Understand the different between registered and unregistered rights

  • See the important and value of IP to their business

  • Understand the IP rights are territorial so different countries can   have different regulations

  • Explain the different routes and mechanisms to protect IP abroad

  • Identify potential IP issues when exporting.

  • Know where to seek further help and 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.
