Intellectual Property (IP)/IPManagement Course for Public Agencies

18 Jan 2018

Government agencies are major procurers and users of Intellectual Property. Civil Servants and Public Officers are increasing involved in the creation and management of Intellectual Property. The Instruction Manual and certain Finance Circular Minutes set out policy guidelines regarding the need to avoid infringing copyright, and the management of IP in areas such as procurement, funding of R&D and the secondment of officers.

This course is only open to Singapore Civil Servants and Public Officers.

The “Developments in IP Law” Seminar Series is IP Academy’s annual signature programme for IP professionals in Singapore. The series typically takes place in the first quarter of each year, and discusses IP law developments in the preceding year. The series focuses on developments in Singapore and the UK, and where relevant, developments in the EU, US and Australia.

This series comprises 4 half-day seminars covering the following main domains of IP: Copyright, Patents, Trade Marks/Passing Off and Breach of Confidence/Privacy and Data Protection in January and February 2018.

Like the sell-out previous editions, the 5th edition will again feature a prestigious speaker line-up comprising distinguished academics, experienced practitioners, industry representatives and representatives from the public sector. It is a must-attend programme for anyone with an interest in IP.

This course is pending SILE-CPD accreditation.

A myriad of IP issues arise in the area of employment. This seminar brings together a leading IP academic, a highly-respected litigation lawyer and an experienced in-house counsel, who will discuss the best practices to protect a company's IP and manage disputes with ex-employees.
