Introduction to Intellectual Property

14 August, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

An introduction to intellectual property in the UK, and how to protect the intellectual property assets of your business.

Whether it’s an invention, design, brand name, literary work or a song – this session will give you the knowledge to identify the Intellectual Property (IP) assets contained within your business and how best to protect them.

IP is an important and often undervalued asset. Effective management of your IP assets can yield many benefits including income generation through licensing, sales and/or commercialisation of IP-protected products or services and provide the opportunity to help secure funding for growth.

This session will cover the following:

– IP Defined

– The importance of IP

– The four main types of IP protection:

  • Trade marks
  • Copyright
  • Registered Designs
  • Patents

– Useful links and contacts

BIPC Sussex is located on the first floor of Jubilee Library, Jubilee St, Brighton BN1 1GE

Following the event, the BIPC will send you a feedback form which we would be grateful if you could complete to allow us to monitor the success of our events.
