Description

What is intellectual property and why is it important?

Join us for this knowledge session on IP101 presented by Gavin Recchia, Patent Attorney at Davies Collison Cave.

This workshop will introduce you to the different forms of intellectual property rights available and the circumstances in which they become applicable, focussing on patents, trade marks, industrial designs, trade secrets and copyright.

You will also learn to identify if you have intellectual property to be protected, the steps you should take to protect your intellectual property and the pitfalls to be avoided!
