Intellectual Property Challenges in Software development

Every product of our imagination seems unique to us, and it is almost impossible for us to believe that someone on the other side of the world could have thought, at the same time as we or even before us, of the same thing. Such situations, however, are often found in the creative industries, especially when it comes to software, an area in which trends change every year.

Join us on March 21st, between 6 pm and 9 pm to be aware of the main challenges that can be encountered when creating, selling or working on computer programs.


What you are offered to learn:

 How to ensure that the computer program created is truly an absolute novelty;

 Know who could steal our idea and how to protect ourselves from it;

 Learn what can be done when the name of our software has already been officially registered by someone else;

 How to know if other products with similar or identical name to our product is officially registered somewhere in the world.
