Your Intellectual Property “IP” Assets: How to Protect Your Business Value
Your business IP asset value is likely to be more valuable than the sum of your buildings, plant and equipment. Trademarks, designs, copyright, website content, client details, staff identities, operating processes, and training materials are all part of your IP. Yet over 90% of all businesses fail to protect their IP assets. Companies lose vital data through online and hard copy theft. Staff leavers often disclose employer IP to subsequent employers. Firms lose essential customers, suppliers and staff every year with poor controls.
Three main reasons to attend:
1.You will identify your key IP asset risks
2.You will learn how to register and maintain IP assets
3.You will see case studies and examples of good practice
