Your employees create new ideas, they build your brand and they work with your partners. Ownership and sharing is what intellectual property is about: The only way your organization can legally own what your employees create is by transferring intellectual property rights (IPR). Brands, technology and secrets, you must own them, before you can share and trade.
Business means transactions of all sorts. You must understand risks and value.
Employee contracts, mergers and aquisitions, licensing, innovation processes, branding are only a few of the areas where intellectual property is of concern for your business.
