Intellectual Property Law & Rights Talk
Intellectual property refers generally to creations of the mind that can be made into tangible objects, such as literary and artistic works, inventions, symbols, names, images and designs. Intellectual property law is the corresponding set of laws that protect the creators of these works. Since intellectual property, or IP, can encompass such a broad range of artistic or scientific creations, it is often divided into two categories: copyright, and industrial property.
Copyright includes literary works, such as novels, scripts, and films, and musical and artistic works, such as paintings, photographs, sculptures and architectural designs. Industrial property rights include patents and trademarks, which are used to protect inventions and source identifying marks and symbols.
While providing an open platform for Innovation, the *iHub_ is more than happy to welcome John Syekei to engage with the community of innovators and inventors, taking them through different laws and Rights on Interlectual Property. He will be giving a talk on this Thursday the 2nd at the *iHub_ starting 6pm.
This is a free to attend event and open to all, but you must R.S.V.P. as seats are limited.
