Business Essentials: Intellectual Property - Dumb & Dumber 3

Print Version


In this Business Essentials session Clifford Gouldson Director Ben Gouldson and Senior Lawyer Sam Davidson will identify and explain the three most common errors they see new and existing businesses make with their intellectual property and how easily you can avoid those errors yourself. 

These case studies will include:

  • A highly successful, established business that relied on company name registration alone to protect their brand and IP and was forced into expensive litigation to defend themselves as a result;
  • Businesses who had to endure the use of their name by a rival business for a period of time because they hadn’t got their own IP house in order first and the strategy they employed to overcome that illicit use; and
  • How failure to diligently attend to the administrative aspects of IP renewal post registration cost one well known brand their domain name - twice.

Do any of these situations sound familiar? 

This topic is a good reminder of fundamental IP habits for any new or existing business owner and the accountants, financial planners and other advisors who assist them. 

This is the last Business Essentials for the year so we'd love for you to come along hear some interesting tales and join us for refreshments afterwards.

Starting at 3.30 pm.  Followed by drinks and light refreshments.
