The following announcement is due to appear on the ideas21 website and in the ideas21 and IPO newsletters with full details of the events to appear on the Bristol Central Library website : -
ideas21 is delighted to announce that we are expanding our free Intellectual Property Clinics in the New Year with advice sessions now to be held monthly at the Bristol Central Library. It is important that individuals and small businesses developing innovative products can protect themselves from copyists and imitators. Intellectual Property rights, such as patents, trade marks and registered designs, can provide this protection.
ideas21 member, Lewis Hands, principal attorney at Handsome IP, has kindly offered his services in running these sessions for us. Lewis is a registered European Patent Attorney, a Chartered UK Patent Attorney and a European Trade Mark and Design Attorney. He is a member of the Institute of Professional Representatives before the European Patent Office and a member of the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys.
These clinics are supported by the PATLIB Bristol at Bristol Central Library and as part of the Our City Ambitious together theme supporting the growth of an enterprise culture and the UK IPO.
The first session is to be held on Tuesday, 20th January 2009.
