SPEAKERS

Martin Brassell and Professor Iwan Davies founders of Inngot Ltd (www.inngot.com

Built to power the knowledge economy, Inngot has been delivered using a unique combination or technical, legal, financial and advisory expertise.

Founded in 2007 to help organisations everywhere capitalise on the strength of their IP and intangibles, which form the ‘currency’ of the knowledge economy.

IP isn’t just for patents, inventors and scientists. Nor is it all about copying.Every time you create something – a design, a composition, a software program, an app, in fact anything you express for the first time – you’re creating IP. This means you have legal rights that you can choose to exercise in different ways (and some responsibilities, too).

IP is the lifeblood of your creative or digital business. It is important to be aware of it, know what you have, how you can protect it fully and to get an idea of how much it is worth to you. That’s what you’ll get from this interactive workshop.

By covering all aspects of IP, and relating them to digital and creative businesses, you’ll get the know-how you need to tackle questions like the following:

  • What can I do when people copy my work?
  • When I collaborate with other individuals or companies, who owns the IP?
  • Who owns the copyright or design right in work I do for other people?
  • How can I protect software code, and how much of it is automatic?
  • How open should I be with my customers?
  • What rights can I exercise over my IP if I don’t want to charge for it?
  • How do I find out who owns which rights in works I want to use?
  • How can I make money from licensing my IP (or licensing other people’s)?

There will be ample opportunities to ask questions about your specific IP issues/concerns during the workshop and to discuss things that concern you with experts and peers.

Followed by drinks and networking.
