A multidimensional approach to Intellectual Property Rights Worldwide during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Let’s look at the ways companies protect their IP and profit from it. The simplest way for a company to protect its intellectual property is to never reveal it—to create what is called a trade secret. This is how Coca-Cola protects the formula for its hugely popular soda. If the secret were discovered or revealed through nefarious intent, then trade secret law would allow punishment of the perpetrator, including criminal prosecution. But if a company somehow developed the same formula on its own, Coca-Cola could do nothing to stop them.

Therefore, companies opt for other IP protection - patents and copyrights. In this web-conference, we delve into the interesting subject of IR as our experts discuss and educate us on the different aspects of this Law.
