All you need to know about Intellectual Property

Dr Jo Shaw, from AJ Park Patent Attorneys will be coming to e2e to de-mystify this oft-misunderstood area that is very important to young startup companies and inventors.

Jo will be speaking about:

  • What is freedom to operate,
  • When to protect IP,
  • What are the different types of IP protection
  • What you get with IP protection & what you don’t get
  • What are the costs going to be in the long run,
  • What happens if you have protection and someone infringes on it,
  • Occasions when not to protect IP

She will also have time available for questions.

We look forward to seeing you at The BCC.

    We are pleased it was confirmed to us that once your 'IP/Idea' is shared with anyone else prior to applying for a Patent/s the Patent/s become 'null en void'!! Applying for Patents in New Zealand may not necessarily be the wised move, depending on "where" your market share will mostly be attained in terms of dollar sales and income. Copyright is very strong still with "proof".

    Realised just how complex the IP can be, but just how many holes there are to protect ones IP, patents, trademarks, etc.
    Wonder whether it's worthwhile for a small fry NZ person to bother, just get on & market a product & live in hopes.
    But for a really great invention or idea it has its merits.
