Legally Branded Academy is a business course that helps students to turn their ideas into assets. It does this by teaching them how to identify intellectual property and follow the right processes and actions before proceeding to create a given type of intellectual property asset. That is the way to benefit from your ideas, avoid having them stolen as you implement your plans, and avoid legal liabilities when choosing new names, commissioning logos, websites, software and more.
Legally Branded Academy benefits any business, charity or product to take due account of intellectual property when progressing projects or new ideas.
By teaching students how to choose names and do trademark searches themselves, and how to protect copyright and confidential information, it will enable businesses to avoid many of the most expensive, stressful legal troubles that business owners unwittingly encounter.
The instructions include step by step video guidance showing the trademark registers and a few key templates and checklists so that essential intellectual property assets are never lost through oversight. Following the processes ensures that copyright issues are always flagged up when commissioning works, getting prototypes designed, finding new brand names and so on. These early actions and decisions which often happen well before small businesses would normally turn to lawyers for help is where most mistakes are made.
Lawyers are expensive, and people are always introducing new ideas and projects. It’s just not feasible to have a lawyer hold your hand every time you create something new.
So, the Legally Branded Academy delivers the early intellectual property advice people need. It’s a video based online course that provides the know-how, simple steps and processes to introduce into your business to protect your intellectual property on an ongoing basis. That’s how you protect future business assets, and get the benefit of the value inherent in ideas.
Taking the right actions early on when you’re creating something new in your business is as important, if not sometimes more so, than registering your rights later on.
The course also includes checklist so existing businesses can do an intellectual property audit of their own business too. There are suggestions for how to cure any defects found. This alone can save a business thousands of pounds. If you plan to sell your business one day, then do an audit several years before any potential sales conversations to give yourself plenty of time to put right any problems found. Some problems can take a few years to resolve. Even smaller IP problems could kill the sale or substantially reduce the price you could achieve.
So the Legally Branded Academy equips you with all you need in the early stages of a project to successfully implement ideas.
It’s a business course, and the actions you need to take are similar wherever in the world you may be located. So, the course is suitable for a worldwide audience.
The information does not deal with the minutiae of the law. By understanding the big picture businesses can take appropriate actions and do many of the initial steps to protect their assets themselves.
