Intellectual Property (“IP”) has been described by the Financial Times as one of the key drivers of business competitiveness in the 21st century. Therefore, a clear understanding is essential not only for creative people or entrepreneurs but for anyone who wants to succeed in business and not have their ideas stolen.
By focusing on the IP legal advice that his small to medium sized business clients have been willing to pay for, Paul Brennan gives a presentation which will enable you to say “that’s my copyright” and at least sound as if you know what you are talking about which can be the cheapest and most powerful of weapons available to you.
Paul Brennan is uniquely qualified to explain how copyright protection works internationally. He has practiced law in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia. His experience of IP enforcement with US multi-national Intel, as a partner in law firms in London and Sydney, and ten years in Asia have combined to give him a broad experience. A post graduate in international copyright law, he now runs his own general commercial and property law firm working with small to medium sized businesses.
