Ask the Expert | Intellectual Property Rights: Protecting Your Start-up’s Knowledge Capital

Group Description:

 

Note: This discussion with the expert is now closed. However, the group remains open for interaction amongst members.

 

Entrepreneurship is, today, driven by innovation and creativity making it critical to protect one’s invention, technology and knowledge. So what exactly constitutes intellectual property? How does a start-up go about protecting its intellectual property? What are the different kinds of IP? How different are trademarks from copyrights? What is protectable and what is not? How do you apply for a patent? At what stage of invention can you get your start-up idea patented? How do you know when you are infringing on someone else’s intellectual property and what are the repercussions? How strict are the IP laws in India?

 

To answer all these questions and more, we feature this week, Praveer Gupta, an expert on Patents and Intellectual Property.

Is expensive office space a major constraint for bootstrapping startups?
Posted by Nitesh Chandra 2 years 18 weeks

Let's face it, office space doesn't come cheap and there is only so much we can do from home. To build a team, to have the interest of potential recruits/customers, a decent office is essential. It also adds greatly to one's productivity for sure.

So, how are the startups meeting this challenge? Any innovative ideas/offers?

One offer that I know of and am currently availing is the 3-month complimentary Regus Businessworld Gold Membership by EFactor. http://www.efactor.com/toolbox/regus

If you are aware of any similar offers, do share.
