Intellectual property protection meeting

A meeting on the protection of intellectual property is to be held tomorrow.

A Government spokeswoman said intellectual property was a work or invention to which people have rights and for which someone can apply for a patent, copyright or trademark.

She added that included “all mediums of art, oral knowledge, ideas and innovations whether it be food recipes, music recordings or literary works”.

The spokeswoman said: “Even something as simple as an innovative kite design can be classed as intellectual property.”

The meeting will cover trademarks, copyright and patents and will inform Bermudians about their rights, both in Bermuda and abroad.

The Intellectual Property Office organised the meeting at the Bermuda Industrial Union's Hamilton headquarters with the Department of Community and Cultural Affairs.

The free event will start at 5.30pm in the EF Gordon Hall.

A meeting on the protection of intellectual property will be held tomorrow at the Bermuda Industrial Union.
