Intellectual Property - Is it Worth Protecting?

Do you have a good idea? Are you worried about how to protect it and how to turn that idea into a profitable reality? This workshop is for individuals and businesses that want to understand intellectual property (IP) and how it relates to their ideas.

This workshop will walk participants through the basics of intellectual property, equipping them with the level of knowledge necessary to begin planning their own IP strategies.

Participants will learn:

  • What the differences are between trade-marks, copyrights, and patents;
  • How to decide which one is the appropriate type of intellectual property for an idea;
  • The steps that need to be taken to protect an idea;
  • What rights they have as the owner of a trade-mark, copyright, or patent;
  • What they are allowed to do as users of the intellectual property of others;
  • The first steps in dealing with an infringement;
  • Why penguins make great criminals.

The workshop will feature interactive exercises that will allow participants to work in groups and solve fictional intellectual property problems.

Workshop leaders will include:

  • Eugene Gierczak – Partner, Miller Thomson; and national chair of the firm’s Intellectual Property and Information Technology Group
  • Guiseppina D’Agostino – Associate Professor, Osgoode Hall Law School; and Founder and Director of IP Osgoode
  • Asad Ali Moten – Law student, Osgoode Hall Law School
