Bitesize Lincs: Introduction to Intellectual Property Rights
|15 Nov||9am - 10:30pm||Ramada Resort Grantham, Toll Bar Road , Marston, Grantham, Lincolnshire, NG32 2HT|
Understanding where you stand on Intellectual Property is all important – both in terms of protecting your own rights and ensuring you don’t infringe on those of others. Businesses with an eye on IP keep their ideas and protect business growth.
Many businesses and individuals have never thought properly about IP and what it can do for them, and there is a general feeling that this is all is too expensive and time-consuming. In reality for most this is not true, and proper exploitation of your IP can add value to your business, generate revenue streams and give you a competitive advantage in negotiations.
Jason Teng and Deborah Maxwell are UK Chartered and European Patent Attorneys, and will deliver their Introduction to IP at this interactive breakfast briefing. They will share their experience and knowledge on dealing with intellectual property issues, and will cover topics such as an introduction to IP rights, protecting your IP rights, understanding other people’s IP rights, and seeking professional advice from IP attorneys.
With over 15 years’ experience as Patent Attorneys with Potter Clarkson LLP, Jason and Deborah are well versed with a wide variety of differing sectors to draw from.
Some people think they understand IP, in reality few people do. It’s not all about employing expensive lawyers but maximising your commercial advantages as you will discover.
