Are you giving away your intellectual property for free?

Patent attorney Virginia Driver, who specialises in intellectual property strategy and protection for the tech and electronics sectors, will be presenting at the online Bruntwood SciTech Wednesday event on 15th April.

Are you giving away your intellectual property for free?

She will be discussing:


  • How to recognise that you have made a protectable innovation and take steps to keep ownership of your ideas.
  • Common myths that often result in protectable innovation being given to the public at large.
  • Categories of innovators – where do you fit?  
  • Inventors, authors, designers, brand owners, software developers.
  • What you can and should do next. 


The event will be taking place online at 6pm and will also be screened on Youtube.
