Open IPR basics online course!
It is hard to imagine that any modern company that operates in the information society could avoid dealing with intellectual property and the legal rights that protect them. Intellectual property rights (IPR), are vital to companies that deal with or base their operations on new technologies, distinctive designs or well-known brands. Even if a company is not itself focused on creating new innovations, intellectual property rights may still play an important strategic role for it.
During this course you will familiarise yourself with intellectual property rights and learn how they are utilised in a business environment. From time to time, intellectual property rights may seem somewhat complex, especially when the development of new technology comes into play, bringing new sorts of IPR questions to consider. After successfully passing the course, you will be able to recognise possibilities as well as difficulties related to intellectual property rights. You will also be able to look for information from the right sources or to consult a professional when necessary.
