You are thinking about getting self–employed or to set up your own venture? Then you are right in the startup consulting of Hochschule Mannheim. Each week there is a discussion with experts about topics like brand–building, economic or judicial basics for start ups.

This week is about patent and trademark law. On December 1st, Dr. Philipp Herwig from Thews & Thews law firm will provide you with all the information and answer your questions.

Product and brand piracy causes Germany's economy an annual loss of around 50 billion euros! That's a lot.

Unfortunately, there is also a realistic risk for startups that ideas will be copied and that is often the heart of the company. Both patent and trademark law offer protection against this.

Patent attorney Dr. Philipp Herwig gives you basic knowledge of both property rights in his lecture. The goal is that you then know for which technical parts of your idea you can obtain a patent and what makes a good brand in a legal sense.

As always, there will also be a Q&A session.

 

When? December 01, 2020 5:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.

Where? online
