One Day Ownership and Control of Intellectual Property Rights Programme: London, United Kingdom - November 6, 2019 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Ownership and Control of Intellectual Property Rights" conference has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The world of intellectual property can be complex and confusing and this course is designed to get you up to speed on the main types: what they are, how to protect and exploit your own intellectual property and how to avoid infringing someone else's. It is a perfect one-day primer designed to make you feel like a mini-expert in every area of intellectual property rights in both practical and commercial terms. By familiarising you with the most important legislation and case law, the course will also arm you with the ability to look up further questions yourself.

In addition, the day will offer an invaluable opportunity to ask the expert trainer about any particular issues that may affect you and your business and to interact with other delegates and learn from their experiences.
