Innovative and creative ideas are at the heart of most successful businesses. Ideas by themselves, however, have little value. They need to be developed, turned into innovative products or services and commercialized successfully so as to enable you to reap the benefits of your innovation and creativity.
This event will provide attendees with legal fundamentals of acquisition of patents, copyrights and trademark rights. It will also describe the basics of how to protect intellectual property rights and how to avoid (or react to) other claims of infringement. Presenters will also explain how to take cost effective steps to protect innovations and how to maintain trade secrets while selling innovations.
