  • Best practise to manage intellectual property during the creation phase
  • Facts and myths about the ownership of creations and inventions
  • Common forms of IP rights, how they are typically used and defended

In practice: Protecting your IP (IPIC – 40mins):

For each industry, key takeaways will include:

  • Typical forms of IP rights in the industry and how these are used
  • How the IP rights are typically monetized
  • Managing risks of losing your IP
