Intellectual Property Workshop
FashionTT, in collaboration with the Intellectual Property Office, hosted an Intellectual Property Workshop on Friday 30th August 2019 at ExporTT Training Room, 151b Charlotte Street, Port of Spain.
Fashion designers face a unique set of challenges in protecting their intellectual property. Though a fanciful garment may be the result of a single creative process by the designer, a designer or manufacturer may need to use multiple forms of intellectual property to fully protect the fashion design of that garment. IP Lawyer, Mr. Anthony Vieira, lectured as it related to these legal aspects.
Participants were taught:
- to promote awareness of intellectual property within the local fashion industry.
- key IP segments such as copyright, trademarks, industrial designs and patents.
- commercial contracts and best practices related to licensing, franchising, partnering and employment.
- to use of IP rights to reduce risk.
