Intellectual Property Course


Intellectual property (or IP) is protected in law by trade marks, patents, registered designs and copyright which enable people or organisations to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create. By protecting intellectual property, your organisation may gain a competitive advantage in the market place, enabling you to profit and grow.

Safetrac’s ‘Intellectual Property’ course provides organisations and their employees with a general understanding of your legal and contractual obligations regarding the intellectual property of your organisation.
