Virtuoso Legal Review

Hallam Whitehead, Trainee Solicitor

Intellectual property is an abstract concept by definition and despite being coined by Mark Getty as being the oil of the 21st century, in practice many people remain in the dark regarding the nature of the core intellectual property rights and how best to protect and ultimately benefit from them. Don’t Steal My Stuff provides an illustrative and engaging introduction to intellectual property, the value of brand strength, and the importance of being proactive in the registration and protection of your rights. Having completed this introduction to the core IP rights, the creators will undoubtedly be better placed to protect and exploit their talents with a foundational awareness of the value of their own rights and those of others.

Jiri Svorc's Legal Review

Qualified Solicitor SRA Regulated

IP Smart is an advanced-level course on intellectual property emphasising the unmissable commercial value and significance of IP in our everyday lives, and helping us understand why businesses are, or should be, diligent in protecting and enforcing their IP. The course highlights some key features of the most common forms of IP so that business audience can directly apply lessons learned to their own IP, review their protection and enforcement efforts and rethink their IP strategy. Unlike the entry-level course, this course also provides valuable guidance on licensing your IP to others, as well as on using third-party IP lawfully - all with reference to practical examples. This course is very useful for anyone interested in the creative industries, or in the protection and/or monetisation of IP. It is also highly relevant for and recommended to business professionals or anyone whose encounters with IP extend beyond the logo on their morning coffee cup.
