An understanding of intellectual property and its protection is vital for anyone with an idea, whether it’s an invention, a brand name or a song. This presentation will introduce the four areas of intellectual property and help you understand which may apply to you and your business.

These four main areas are:
• Patents
• Trade Marks
• Registered designs
• Copyright

By the end of this session attendees will have a grasp of the fundamentals of IP, the ability to distinguish between various types of IP rights and methods for searching registered IP. This understanding will empower participants to initiate their own research confidently.
