Intellectual Property – Protect Your Business!
Whether you are starting out in business, have an existing business, created a new product or brand you need to protect your Intellectual Property. Most successful businesses, large or small, are built on well managed intangible assets like intellectual property (IP). Businesses create and use IP all the time, perhaps without realising it. Whether it is the name of your company, the content of your website, logo, photographs… the value of 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. This workshop introduces the 4 areas of intellectual property, trademarks, copyright, design registration and patents so as you can learn how to protect your business.
