South Africa's Intellectual Property laws and dynamics are in a state of flux; either from the novel applications, it is having to be applied to, or from developments in the relevant laws themselves. Does an app use patents or copyright? What protects computer programmes? How does 40-year-old law apply to objects and concepts not even dreamed of when the law was created?
Come join us for an IP Masterclass workshop, where we shall not only re-position the traditional IP classes into the modern context of tech and apps but also look at how the law is evolving and what it means for you as a pioneer in the SME and tech industry. Remind yourself of the fundamentals of IP Protection, and then also learn something new, in an engaging way!
