Intellectual Property: An interactive workshop for social enterprises
Intellectual Property(IP) and Intellectual Property Rights(IPR) are increasingly important terms in todays business world. Every business has IP irrespective of trading style or sector of operation, and it is often a mistake made by business start-ups in the rush to get into operation that they neglect to consider IP both to protect what they have and to ensure they are not infringing rights of others. There is often more value in the portfolio of intellectual assets of an organisation than in the hard commercial assets. The IP systems provide the opportunity to protect these increasingly important assets. It is important that a business considers IP and selects which of the IPR is of most importance, which can add value to a business and offers a degree of protection which is affordable.
