Intellectual property is one of the most important assets of any business. Leveraging its potential involves well-structured management throughout its lifecycle. Managing large IP portfolios requires a good docketing system and due diligence. Businesses need to be constantly vigilant about IP commercialisation and potential IP infringements. This course covers the important aspects of IP management. It includes:
- Kinds of commercialisation that an IP owner can explore to exploit IP
- Role of IP firms in IP management
- IP docketing
- Legal and technical aspects of digital rights management
- IP due diligence
- IP valuation
The standout feature of this module is that you will be able to analyse how a company's IP portfolio is assessed based on financial, commercial and legal benefits. You will also develop an understanding of how IP firms and organisations, structure IP management and use different digital rights management tools to safeguard their IP in the largely vulnerable digital world.
