Get your copy right on World IP Day (and the rest of the year!)

A reminder that the Library & Information Service offers a wealth of help with your intellectual property questions, all year round.

What do we mean by IP, or intellectual property? According to the World Intellectual Property Organisation it ‘refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions; literary and artistic works; designs; and symbols, names and images used in commerce’. It is protected by various laws and can be a notoriously complex area to get to grips with, whether you’re trying to protect your own intellectual property or make sure you don’t infringe the rights of others.

World IP Day (26 April) is a reminder that we should keep up to date with the latest guidance on intellectual property, trademarks and copyright. In the UK the primary source about information protections on intellectual property is the Intellectual Property Office; however ICAEW Library offers quick access to some online information, such as links to eBooks, Director’s briefings, checklists and other key links, to help you navigate your way through.

And it’s where you’ll also find a link to the list of books we hold on the subject. Here are some of the useful titles we hold: just click on one to see more detail.

It may seem patently obvious but if you need further information contact the Library today. We can help make sure you stay on the rights track.
