IP refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions; literary and artistic works; designs; and symbols, names and images used in commerce.

Topics of the workshop include:

  • Patents
  • Trademarks
  • Designs
  • Copyright

What are they, what do they protect, how does your company obtain them, how long to they last?
