Cherrie Stewart, Chartered Trade Mark Attorney, and Dr. Isabel Meenan, European and Chartered Patent Attorney, are hosting a webinar together with the Ballymena Business Centre, looking at how to protect Intellectual Property Rights.
Aimed at entrepreneurs, innovators and SMEs, this seminar will introduce you to some of the actions you can take to safeguard the unique elements of your business.
What sets your business apart from others? Perhaps it’s the signs which allow consumers to identify your brand, i.e., the names, logos, colour schemes, slogans, etc., perhaps a novel invention or an improvement to an existing product. Maybe it’s the look of your product or its packaging that distinguishes you or it could be some ‘know-how’ that provides you with a competitive edge. Whatever it is you have spent time, energy and resources in developing these elements of your business and you deserve to benefit from them without the fear of a third-party taking advantage of your hard work and ingenuity.
Aimed at entrepreneurs, innovators and SMEs, this webinar will introduce you to some of the actions you can take to safeguard the unique elements of your business. We will consider the way in which Intellectual Property, namely, trade mark goodwill and registration, patents, design rights, copyright and trade secrets can be utilised to secure these valuable assets answering questions such as: –
- How do I protect the signs, i.e., trade marks, which serve to identify my brand?
- How can I prevent another business from making and selling my innovative product?
- My product has an unusual look, can I protect it?
- What do the © and ® symbols mean and can I use them?
- Can I protect an idea?
