Free Online Intellectual Property Course from the IPO

The IPO (Intellectual Property Office) partners with the Berkshire Growth Hub to provide funded, no cost to you, 1-1 advice clinics. Also available is their free, online  Intellectual Property course – IP Equip.

IP Equip contains 4 short modules and uses real life case studies to show why intellectual property is important.

Intellectual property (IP) is something unique that you physically create. This can include your inventions, the names of your products or brands, the design or look of your products and things you write, make or produce. 

Having the right type of intellectual property protection helps you to stop people stealing or copying:

  • the names of your products or brands
  • your inventions
  • the design or look of your products
  • things you write, make or produce

By using this free e-learning tool, you’ll learn about intellectual property rights such as trade marks, patents, copyright and designs. You get some types of protection automatically, others you have to apply for.

If you have a specific IP question that relates to your own business, sign up for our next 1-1 IP Advice Clinic which we will be running again this summer and announcing soon. Check our events page for details of this and other events throughout Berkshire that can help your business to grow.
