This talk will look at measures a compnany can take to avoid giving away what may be some of its most valuable assets - intellectual property. Mark will consider the protection of technical ideas, such as ideas for products and processes. Leigh will consider the protection of brands, logos and content such as web content, handbooks and training materials.
