Innovation Bites: What about my IP? Will prefab design bite innovators?

PrefabNZ, the heart of innovative construction, are over-the-moon to offer an engaging series of bite-sized webinars to benefit you and your enterprise -- wherever you are.

Presenter: Jenni Rutter - Kensington Swan

Topic: Innovation Bites - What about my IP? Will prefab design bite innovators?

What impact does standardisation have on innovation? What does standardisation of design and open source mean for innovators like architects and product designers? What IP will there be in the prefab industry and how can it be monetised so innovators don’t miss out? Join this webinar to hear more about this topic from IP expert Jenni Rutter of Kensington Swan. Bring along your burning questions about copyright in prefab designs and plans, who owns them, who can copy them, and how we protect the interests of architects and designers in the prefab environment.
