Own-it | Intellectual Property Know-How for Creative Businesses


Making ideas, making IP, making money

Published 26.04.07 at 19:30

Linking new and creative ideas with a clear intellectual property strategy is the key to success for design businesses with dynamic products to expose to the consumer market. Knowing your key market and the ways in which your product will be used, as well as how, when and where to patent or register your designs or where to go for investment are all important factors for any inventor or product designer.

This podcast is a result of a collaboration between Own-it, IEA (Innovative Enterprise Action) and Ideas 21 on an event which took place on World Intellectual Property Day in April 2007. It covers: finding your market, using IP in business development plans, making money from your ideas and negotiating licensing agreements.

The podcast is downloadable in two parts.
