IP Management

Intellectual property (IP) is the lifeblood of every knowledge-based start-up or venture. In this lecture, learn how to identify and manage your intellectual property in a strategic way and examine how it fits in with your overall business model. A large part of your competitive advantage depends on your ability to protect and properly exploit or commercialize your product or service innovations. IP law provides the framework for protecting and commercializing these innovations. We use some real-world examples, particularly in the IT/Web 2.0 space, where IP issues arise and discuss how to address them effectively.
