Wired City Reconnected is partnering with Cobbetts LLP  to organise the first Leeds based 'collaborative' networking event for the digital, creative and ICT sector.

"The event will commence with a presentation from Emma Roe on “Protecting Your Business’s Intellectual Property

Understanding your intellectual property rights is a critical starting point not only to minimising risks for your business, but also to ensure you are making the most of these valuable business assets.  Emma will introduce you to the different types of intellectual property rights that might be available to your business and how to go about protecting those rights.  Being accused of infringing someone else’s rights or trying to defend your own can be an expensive matter, so Emma will also look at practical ways of positioning your business to avoid this type of exposure."

 This presentation will be followed by “collaborative networking” facilitated by the Wired City Reconnected team

Cobbetts LLP will be delighted to provide a free legal surgery for your IP issues.  Emma Roe, an Associate in Cobbetts' TMTI  team will be happy to deal with queries taking no more than 10 minutes, for which no charge will be made.  The surgery will be an excellent opportunity to get advice on a ‘sounding board’ basis.  (Please note, all advice will be without legal responsibility and is not a substitute for obtaining specific legal advice).
