Protecting your ideas and inventions – World IP Day


Intellectual Property (IP) can be owned, bought and sold. But how does this affect you? St John’s Innovation Centre and The Intellectual Property Office (IPO) invite individuals and businesses in Cambridgeshire to a special event on World IP Day - April 26th 2012 - for an overview on how patents and designs can be used to protect ideas and inventions.

You will find out how to make the most of your business’s intellectual property using trademarks and copyright and hear how a successful, growing company has effectively protected their exclusive online product.

Miles Rees, Business Outreach Manager from the Intellectual Property Office comments: “The Intellectual Property Office always looks forward to World IP Day, which is now only weeks away. It provides us with another platform to raise awareness of IP and reinforce the importance of good IP management.

“We are very much looking forward to being part of the World IP Day celebrations at St John’s Innovation Centre in Cambridge.  Our experts will be there giving an overview of Intellectual Property, and answering any questions event delegates may have.”
