Wired City Reconnected is working in partnership with Cobbetts LLP to
organise and deliver a series of business networking events aimed at the Digital, Creative and ICT sector.
The focus for these (and future) events is to enhance the network member's legal understanding and try
and protect the business's intellectual property.
Leeds Wired City Reconnected Event:
Protecting Your Business's Intellectual Property
The event will commence with a presentation from Emma Roe‡ (Cobbetts LLP):
"Understanding your intellectual property rights is a critical starting point not only to minimising risks for your business,
but also to ensure you are making the most of these valuable business assets.
"Emma will introduce you to the different types of intellectual property rights that might be available to your business and
how to go about protecting those rights. Being accused of infringing someone else?s rights or trying to defend your own can
be an expensive matter, so Emma will also look at practical ways of positioning your business to avoid this type of exposure."
The presentation will be followed by 'collaborative networking' session facilitated by the Wired City Reconnected team.
Cobbetts LLP will be delighted to provide a free, informal legal surgery for your IP issues. Emma Roe, an Associate in Cobbetts' TMTI
team will be happy to deal with queries taking no more than 10 minutes, for which no charge will be made. The surgery will be an
excellent opportunity to get advice on a 'sounding board' basis. (Please note, all advice will be without legal responsibility)
