About this podcast, titled; ‘Trademarks, Copyright and Patents. Understanding Intellectual Property Law’.
The topic of IP Law can be quite a confusing subject. There are so many rabbit warrens that we can be led down in the space of IP (or Intellectual Property) legalities, so I set out in this podcast to dispel some of the myths and to bring some relatable clarity to some of the common areas.
Those areas being; patents, trademarks and copyright.
My guest on the podcast is IP Law expert, Anthony Verna from Vrna Law. Anthony did a great job of breaking down different areas of IP Law and making them apply to a trade/construction business.
IP protection is a big deal and there are things that we can do, to make sure that our businesses and our assets are safe and protected. During this podcast, I learned the following:
- Patents are there to protect ideas and inventions
- Trademarks protect brands as an asset
- Copyright protects logos, slogans, colours and even shapes.
It was a really interesting conversation. One that I’m sure you’ll learn a lot from and one that I hope will one day protect you from getting into trouble.
