Why is intellectual property important to public authorities and how do you protect your intellectual property rights?
As part of our WGCD Lot 8 – Major IT & Commercial Contracts webinar series, Emily Powell, Matt Detheridge and Harry Sawyer provide you with an introduction to intellectual property and answer these questions and more.
They explain the reasons why it’s important to public authorities, with a particular focus on public authorities who purchase goods and services. They discuss the different types of intellectual property, how they might arise and the best means of protecting those rights.
The webinar also discusses the impact of the Open Government Licence and provides you with best practice and top tips to utilise intellectual property effectively, including in circumstances where public authorities wish to exploit their intellectual property commercially.
We have posted the webinar recording above, for you to watch at your leisure. You can watch the rest of the WGCD Framework Fortnight information sessions series, on our dedicated webpage.
