The basics of Intellectual Property
Module Leader/s: Clive Lawrence/John Sykes
Full Day course
This informative and interactive full day session (which combines theory-based learning with a series of interactive group sessions) has been created to provide a comprehensive introduction to the relevant law for anyone who works day to day with the things intellectual property protects – technologies, ideas and innovations, original designs and new products, brands and advertising, software and databases, creativity and creative work in all its forms.
This module aims to provide participants with:
- the knowledge and understanding they need to take the right steps in order to identify, protect and defend the intellectual property rights they and their businesses create, and turn innovation into value.
- the legal understanding to avoid the pitfalls that can cause opportunities to be lost or can expose them to liability
- a thorough introduction to the key concepts of intellectual property law.
By the end of this module, participants will:
- understand the key concepts that underpin UK intellectual property law;
- understand where creativity and effort can be turned into valuable property rights and what can be done to identify, protect and defend those rights;
- be better armed to deal with threats from outside and to avoid liability for infringement;
- be able to use the learning they have acquired to add value to their business; and
- have had the chance to discuss and argue positions extensively throughout the group work and case studies, giving them the confidence to apply what they have learned in a live environment.
