Marks & Clerk have teamed up with Glasgow Chamber of Commerce to host a Lunch and Learn event to provide an overview of the different types of intellectual property (IP) rights (e.g. patents, trade marks, designs, copyright, and trade secrets), what they are, what they can (and cannot) protect and how they may be applicable to your business. We will help you consider where the value in your product or service is and how that may be protected using intellectual property rights. Through case studies we will discuss how the different forms of IP can be used together to build an IP portfolio that matches your commercial strategy and can help protect (and maximise return on) your investment. We will discuss how the IP system can be used to stop your competitors copying your business and taking advantage of your creativity, skill, and innovation, and what IP rights can be used for and how they are often essential when securing investment.
This workshop will help you understand how to:
