Intellectual Property questions – do you know the answers?

We’ve put together a list of some of the most common questions our Attorneys have been asked by businesses that are new to IP. Think you know the answers?

1- “I have disclosed my invention”. What constitutes a disclosure?
2- “We can’t file a patent application yet – we haven’t made a prototype!” True or False?
3- “I have a patent now that I’ve filed my patent application” True or False?
4- “I’ve got a worldwide patent” True or false?
5- “I can make the product now because I have a patent for it?” True or False?
6- “Now that my company’s name is registered at Companies House, I have a trade mark?” True or False?

The answers to these questions and more are in our ‘Biggest Intellectual Property Myths – Answered‘ podcast. Our Innovation Talks podcasts are available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Spreaker, Deezer or Stitcher. And why not subscribe whilst you’re there so you don’t miss out on future episodes!
