Intellectual Property in the UK

Hello and welcome to my blog on all things relating to intellectual property and technology law in the UK.

For those that don't know intellectual property relates to the law that turns your ideas into commercial assets. You can not protect the idea itself only the elements that make up or give effect to this idea.

I will be commenting on the latest developments in UK copyright, patent, trade mark, design, e-commerce and technology law. Some of these rights require registration and a great place to get further information is the UK Intellectual Property Office. http://www.ipo.gov.uk

Already this year there have been a myriad of developments, with major changes to interpretation of design law and domain names. The UK government is also undertaking a comprehensive review of copyright laws for the digital age.

Rather than watch this space it is a matter of "WATCH THIS BLOG"
