CABN  is delighted to be hosting this event as part of Borders Business Week.   Our speaker, the charismatic and knowledgeable Philip Hannay, is back by popular demand after delivering a great session on Intellectual Property for creatives during last year’s Business Week.   The event has been organised by Giles Etherington, CABN’s Advocate for Business to Business Creative Services, and is open to all creatives who want to know more about protecting their Intellectual Property.


Intellectual Property is one of the greatest ‘known unknowns’ for businesses. The Oxford English Dictionary defines ‘Intellectual property’ (IP) as “intangible property that is the result of creativity”. Do you have an invention, idea, creation or trade secret you want to protect? Join us for an introduction to patents, trademarks and copyright and discover some practical steps for protecting your IP.
