Presentation Abstract

This webinar will provide a framework in how intellectual property strategy can be of service to business strategy.  Specifically, what areas need to be considered in a holistic IP strategy by any innovative company. The goal is for the executive to understand the intellectual property protection needs for their business model and identify the risks and opportunities. Different topics in a holistic IP strategy will be discussed to provide context on the business impact of IP, the basics of intellectual property rights and when each type should be leveraged, areas of considerations for IP governance and policies, and best practices.
