Learn intellectual property basics
Intellectual property is an integral part of a commercialization strategy. This includes not only your novel technology or invention, but also your company’s brand identity and any documentation you develop.
Understanding the differences and the functions of patents, trademarks and copyrights is key to begin formulating this strategy, and can save time, money and resources!
