Annual Intellectual Property Protection, Distribution and Costing Masterclass

Last Friday, this Afro Leo presented at the AMC 2nd Annual Intellectual Property Protection, Distribution and Costing Masterclass arranged by the ever efficient Matshego Njumbuxa and focusing on the practical aspects of IP in business.

The attendance was modest but engaging. [It co-coincided with lull in the tension played out in Port Elizabeth where Australia and RSA are testing their knowhow in an epic test cricket showdown (no amount of patenting can protect against Steyn's reverse swing or Mitch's bouncer). Series is one-all.]

My own contribution can be viewed below or if you are receiving this by email - here IP Models for Africa or on the blog. Other speakers are listed in the program and we would be happy to share their presentations if they send them here.
