Are you exploiting your company’s intellectual property (IP)? Do you know the value of your IP? Do you know who owns the IP in your logo or your website?

It's the perfect opportunity for all businesses looking for the latest information and advice on IP - and is delivered direct from the people in the know - the Intellectual Property Office.

Whether you are an online retailer or a service provider, a sole trader or a multinational your business will rely on IP.

Do you own your trading name? You may, for example, have a limited company and a matching domain name and yet still be infringing someone’s trademark? Do you own your own website? Are you aware of the rules of copyright ownership? In a recent survey 74% of businesses were unsure of who owned the copyright in their business when it was created by a third party.

Once you identify and secure ownership of the IP within your business you have the potential to fully exploit it; many businesses are, for example, successfully franchising their business, could you?

The IoD is collaborating with the Intellectual Property Office to deliver a series of interactive sessions that cover the four main areas of intellectual property - trade marks, patents, designs and copyright – to help demonstrate how you can protect your Intellectual Property rights.

Can you afford to miss the opportunity to secure the future of your business? Book your place now.

Intellectual Property Office is an operating name of the Patent Office
