Protecting your most Valuable Asset (IP): The Hows and Whys
The Small Business Saturday Inspire Series will travel to London for a free workshop on how to protect your brand and IP with Karen Holden from A City Law Firm.
If you are setting up a business or are already trading you will likely spend a great deal of time & money on your brand. Why allow competitors to use this and piggy off your goodwill? Make sure you own that name, logo or slogan because for example:
- It avoids the costs of re-branding if you later find someone already has your name or worse they ‘own it’
- Investors will want their funds protected by knowing the IP is secure as collateral
- The value of IP increases if you own it and it’s in a clear IP portfolio
Karin will explain how you protect it , when you should be registering it , what can and can’t be registered and how you stop someone using your IP.
The event is free for small businesses to attend. It will be live streamed on Periscope with real time Twitter Q&A, so even if you are not in the room you can still get involved. Make sure you follow @SmallBizSatUK for updates.
The schedule for the workshop is as follows:
10.45 Arrival and networking
11.00 Workshop with Karen Holden
12.00 Event ends
We look forward to seeing you on 20th June for an informative workshop and small business networking!
