This course was formerly known as KIEI 935-B
This course addresses what entrepreneurs need to know to secure and leverage the intangible, knowledge based assets of their business. The course begins with a survey of various intellectual property forms for inventions, original expressions, source identifiers/brands and confidential information etc. and how they can be used to build a unique selling proposition. We explore the cost effective paths to registering these intangibles as patents, copyrights, trade marks, or securing same as trade secrets. Methods for leveraging IP ownership to realize investment and or exit from the business are reviewed. Case studies explore entrepreneurship challenges in the electronics accessories, sound engineering, and consumer durable contexts.
