Are you stuck when it comes to the concept of patents, trademarks or copyright? Not a clue about intellectual property or open source? Trying to raise your family’s awareness about issues of piracy and infringement of IP rights without coming across like dregs from the last ice age?
Good idea! We’re here to help! It is undeniable that IP has an increasing impact permeating many aspects of everyday life and professional activities, and it is sometimes difficult to navigate the perilous waters between law and technology. In order to make it as accessible as possible, P&TS has just co-edited, in collaboration with the EPFL and the IPI (The Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property), “The ABC of IP” – a comic book devoted entirely to this topic!
Produced by Deraz and Jacques Louis, this comic deals with a range of topics such as the solitude of inventors, the copying of DVDs or the often misunderstood life of patent exterminators, sorry: examiners. It will be available from 5 November 2016 during the open day at the EPFL, by directly from the IPI and P&TS. It can furthermore be freely enjoyed under http://www.abc-of-ip.com
Have fun reading it!
