Legal Disclaimer

Dear Learner:

Intellectual property (IP) is rapidly replacing tangible assets as a major driving force for business growth. However, despite being a potentially powerful tool for business, IP is not often fully used or optimally exploited. Recognizing this, we have prepared this e-learning course to provide you with a basic understanding of how IP can be strategically leveraged to advance business objectives.

While we provide information about certain legal principles, the information is of a general nature and should not, under any circumstances, be relied upon or construed as legal advice. Legal matters are often complicated and context-specific. We therefore intend the materials presented here as background information for engaging with legal counsel and other experts. In addition, while we have done our utmost to verify the accuracy of the information we have provided, neither we nor the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) guarantee that the information is complete or entirely accurate.

By accessing this course, you acknowledge that its content is for educational purposes only and is not intended as legal advice. Furthermore, you hereby release its authors and CIGI from all claims, including for negligence, arising in connection with your engagement with the course materials. If you have any questions regarding how these terms and the course content apply to your specific circumstances, we encourage you to consult a qualified professional.

We hope that you find Foundations of IP Strategy useful and engaging.
