Ahead of Design Means Business 2-day conference in a couple of weeks, Design Network North wants to know how Intellectual property has impacted on your business.

Bob Elliott of leading North East law firm Crutes will run the website design workshop on the second day of the prestigious event, which takes place on March 15 and 16 at Sage Gateshead. He will be investigating the rights of individuals or companies regarding website content, legal action to prevent others using material without consent and ownership, when an external website developer or designer is involved. Bob said: “A website is an asset that businesses and individuals are entitled to protect against theft. This workshop will show businesses how to look after this asset and prevent unscrupulous competitors from stealing ideas.”
