51 - How to protect intellectual property internationally



How do you protect your intellectual property internationally? This is a question that British exporters need to be able to answer. My name is David James and in this episode of UK Export Advice I’m talking to Deborah Maxwell, Senior Associate at Potter Clarkson about the basics of protecting our IP overseas. The key thing about intellectual property rights is that most of the time the protection only covers one country so if you want worldwide cover you are going to have to file and fund a lot of applications. This rarely makes good business sense so Deborah sheds some light on how to make good international IP decisions.
