What government agencies do you have to engage with (after all, they will want to tax all that money you are making)? How do you start off plugging yourself into your customer community?

          Intellectual property (IP) is the lifeblood of every knowledge-based start-up or venture. Whether your new venture is in enterprise software, mobile technology, Web 2.0, green IT, semiconductors, nanotechnology or clean tech, a large part of your competitive advantage will depend on your ability to protect and properly exploit or commercialize your product or service innovations. This could take the form of a unique software product, a new online brand and user experience, or a patentable invention. IP law provides the framework for protecting and commercializing these innovations. We must not lose sight however that IP is first and foremost a business tool; in other words, a successful IP strategy should always align with your overall business plan and objectives. This seminar covers the basics of IP law but also helps you approach IP in a strategic way and examine how it fits with your overall business model. We will use some real-world examples, particularly in the IT/Web 2.0 space, where IP issues arise and discuss how to address them effectively. The speaker is Mr. Arshia Tabrizi, Managing Partner, Tabrizi Law Office.

            Mr K, the invariably common man, his life passes by as an allegorical equivalent of modern life that is based on work and shopping. A life wasted over a bunch of equipment and devices, which in spite designed to provide easy living, they turn into death machines. A tempo that hastily transits between home, work and mall summing up human life into a number of digits and beeps.
