Intellectual Property: Look but don’t touch
Are you aware our intellectual property is a transboundary resource and for SMEs it is being increasingly undermined…and do you have a strategy in place to keep up with its dramatic change in recent years?
We welcome back Philip Hannay, Managing Director of Cloch Solicitors Limited, an award-winning boutique law firm specialising in business law & intellectual property.
Philip, in his insightful, conversational way will give us an IP refresher as data protection laws tighten over personal data. The UK government has taken down the paywall to close to 4 million companies and opened wide the information store houses on directors, shareholders and persons with significant control. Is this a blunder to avoid or a blessing to accept?
We will also hear how copycat culture undermines artistic works, brands and product design, and ask “Is this flattery or unfair competition?”
Come along to the July Communications Breakfast where Philip will present his take on current trends, threats and opportunities in IP.
