Trademark, copyright, patent are examples of intellectual property; it is, unquestionably, one of the most significant assets of any business. Like a business’s goodwill, it may be intangible, but its value is extraordinary. Acquisition and protection of your business’s intellectual property is critical.

The Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce (ICCC) has brought two experts on the subject to conduct an interactive session on intellectual property. The session will bring for you an unprecedented opportunity to learn about the various forms of intellectual property, when and how to obtain it and how your business can benefit from it.

The session will be led by two renowned leaders on intellectual property rights – Heather Watts and Kavita Ramamoorthy.
