Intellectual Property Essentials [Cambridge Network Webinar]

The most valuable assets in a business are often not physical objects but ideas and knowledge – so-called “intellectual property”. Having the right strategy in place to nurture and protect that intellectual property can mean the difference between success and failure. This webinar will help you to understand the basics of IP.
