IP – A Valuable Business Asset
Intellectual Property (IP) information is a huge source of business and tech insight; a search through IP documents can help you in several ways. You can identify trends and developments in a specified field of technology or commerce. You can discover new product lines. You can identify useful marketing and manufacturing contacts and a list of technology owners, competitors and/or potential partners. You can identify licensing possibilities. You could find a solution to a technical or commercial problem.
Knowing about the IP system and its tools can help you protect your discoveries, business and avoid costly mistakes. Join Cecile Klein and Catherine Vardy from CIPO and Chris Mathis from Springboard Atlantic for a lively discussion about why IP matters.
