Law Way: Intellectual Property (IP) and Branding Workshop 

About this workshop

Law Way: Intellectual Property and Branding is a business development workshop for Indigenous entrepreneurs, organisations and creatives looking to develop and protect their unique brand.

Intellectual Property (IP) and Branding go hand-in-hand. It is essential for Indigenous organisations, businesses and creatives alike to understand IP and develop strategies for the protection of their brand. It is also important to ensure that any use of cultural knowledge, or Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP), in relation to your business and branding is dealt with correctly and appropriately, and not misused by others.
