Thank you to Gill Smith for an insightful talk at our last network meeting
At our network meeting on Tuesday 20th March, Gill Smith delivered a fascinating talk on her experience as Group IP Director at Dyson Technology. In particular, she spoke of the challenges Dyson have faced with copycat versions of their successful blade-less fan, particularly coming out of China since 2010. Her talk included discussing issues such as:
- Available strategies to stop the copyists
- What to expect as a result
- How much you need to invest
- Maintaining your sanity if you get copied!
A copy of Gill’s slides, which includes tips on enforcing IP in china, can be found here.
The meeting was followed by informal discussions over a drink and nibbles.
We had an excellent turn out of around 40 guests for this meeting, so it was also a great opportunity to network with fellow IPAN members.
