Intellectual property and the protection of business ideas
Just as there are laws governing the protection of man and his physical properties, there are also laws governing the protection of the intangible property of man. The concept of intellectual property seeks to protect the products of the human mind the same way the physical property is also protected.
Tolu Olaloye, a Senior Associate of Intellectual Property Practice at Jackson, Etti and Edu, a leading law firm in Nigeria, gave a presentation at the LBS-CKCRLE conference titled ‘Intellectual Property and the Protection of Business Ideas’.
It was a very insightful presentation as intellectual property is a fast-growing field everywhere in the world. It was very obvious from her composure and the ease with which she spoke, that the topic was one close to heart and she did not have any problems driving her well-articulated thoughts home.
