Who hasn't dreamt of becoming a prolific inventor, licensing their patent and seeing their invention used over the world? If you dream of becoming the next Kia Silverbrook, Thomas Edison or Alexander Graham Bell, but don't know how to patent your software yet, this workshop is for you!

Join us as we discuss various key points, such as software patent requirements in the UK and Europe, software and business method patents in the UK, EPO and US approaches, and commercial considerations like competition and copyright in patenting software. qLegal is the law clinic within Queen Mary Legal Advice Centre providing free legal advice, workshops and resources to tech start-up companies and entrepreneurs on a range of complex legal issues.
