CIPA Congress The lifecycle of intellectual property: from cradle to grave
02 Oct 2014
The business programme takes a fresh look at the IP process from making an invention, realising that there might be an invention, protecting the invention (including prosecution and post-grant issues) and commercialisation of IP, including a session on the new trade mark directive and regulation.
 
Topics discussed included: Invention Harvesting; Portfolio Management; the new Trade Mark Directive and Regulation; 
Prosecution; Oppositions (Post-Grant Issues); Commercialisation of IP; Litigation; and Access to Medicine.
