What to Expect:
Many exporters and importers don’t realise the importance of Intellectual Property (IP) until it’s too late. But IP such as trade marks, designs and copyright is crucial to most textile and fashion businesses.
This workshop will focus on the why, what, where and how to protect and enforce your IP including trade marks, copyright and designs and anti-counterfeiting measures. Learn about:
- Why an IP strategy is crucial to your business;
- What types of IP are relevant to your business;
- Where you should protect your IP;
- How to decrease the risk of infringing someone’s IP and how to enforce your rights including working with Customs to stop counterfeiting.
