Picture this: you're an entrepreneur or start-up business with a great idea, product, or service. You have worked hard on developing what you are passionate about and expecting success with your business growth. In a split second, your success and growth are put to a halt and all you have worked for is exploited. Are you protected?
York University's Intellectual Property Law & Technology Law School Program – IP Osgoode's IP Innovation Clinic, in partnership with Sandbox Centre, invites you to join a 5-Part Series: The IP Lunch Club! Every Wednesday during the month of March IP Osgoode & SBX will be offering free virtual info sessions across a wide range of topics that will aid you in making sure your biz, idea, or product is properly protected. Thank you to our presenting sponsor of this series: Barriston Law. Barriston will be joining to offer some local insights on how they are supporting the business community with IP protection and commercialization.
Intellectual Property (IP) commercialization is becoming exceedingly important for small businesses and entrepreneurs alike to consider. In Part 2 of 5, IP Osgoode will summarize the three main ways in which entrepreneurs can profit from their innovative ideas: (1) Creating an IP-based business (2) Licensing and (3) Selling IP. Through highlighting each process, the team will discuss various topics, including hiring an IP lawyer, incorporating a business, creating a franchise, auctioning your patent, and more.
Protecting the ideas and creations of artists, inventors, and business owners allows businesses to grow, and encourages innovation. Register now!
