None of this would be possible without a telecommunications network that provides always-on, anywhere, anytime connectivity that is invisible to the end user. In this discussion we will debate how telecommunications has been instrumental in enabling a new era of communications, entertainment and work. It is about having the intersection of consumer demand, the right technologies, the right services, but it is the network that brings all this together. and Pete Wilson, Senior Patent Attorney, Intellectual Property Department BT - Patents and Intellectual Property It has been estimated that intellectual property rights (IPRs) can account for more than half of the value of SMEs. Yet often there is a lack of understanding of what IPRs are generated within a business, how they can be protected and how companies can avoid infringing the IPRs of other companies. This presentation will provide an overview of the different IPRs and how to work with them. PLACES ARE LIMITED AND ATTENDANCE IS BY REGISTRATION ONLY.
