About this Event

Intellectual Property protection is critical to fostering innovation. Without protection of ideas, businesses and individuals can't reap the benefits of their ideas or inventions. In the age of internet content creation and distribution, your IP is often the most important part of your business and the most difficult to protect.

Through an engaging presentation we will highlight key issues, followed by an interactive Q&A moderated by TechAlliance of Southwestern Ontario.

We will discuss:

  • Emerging issues in trademark applications, new protections and dispute resolution mechanisms
  • Why certain underlying, fundamental steps remain key
  • Key issues in patent applications
  • Steps you should take to avoid problems down the road when developing and protecting your IP
