Bird & Bird's International Aerospace, Defence and Security Group would like to invite you to a seminar titled 'IP Issues in Defence - confidential information from both an insider's and an external lawyer's point of view without risking IPR loss' on Wednesday 19 October 2011.

Copyright versus software patents - the opportunities
Creating IP during a contract
Protecting and ensuring access to those rights
Due diligence - the importance of a good methodology
Rights on exit
Joint ventures, development, collaborators and collaborations
