‘Protecting the Intellectual Property of Jewellers’ by Stephen Welfare
Delighted to see that various jewellery sector magazines (including Retail Jeweller, Drapers OnLine and Jewellery Outlook) picked up the news of our Promoting Intellectual Property Rights (PIPR) initiative which will launch at the International Jewellery London (IJL) 2010 trade show in September to help protect jewellers’ designs.
PIPR will be promoted before and during the show and will highlight the value of intellectual property rights and provide a visual warning to would-be copiers of designs that IJL will not condone any form of infringing conduct at its shows. Lawyers from Royds intellectual property unit will attend the exhibition to provide advice to members of the British Jewellers’ Association under the Copywatch scheme.
