On February 19, the Crimson Start-up Support Foundation of Korea University (KU) held a special lecture on intellectual property rights (IPR) for startups at the college of law. Any students interested in IPR could apply to participate in the lecture through the KU Portal to Information Depository (KUPID).
The lecture began with fundamental concepts of IPR and then moved on to laws and disputes regarding IPR. “IPR not only benefit the inventors, but it is also important when it comes to protecting the right of users,” explained the lecturer. Through the lecture, KU students were able to gain better understanding on trademark registration and different types of IPR when starting a startup.
At the end of the lecture, a short question and answer (Q&A) session was held for the students. The Crimson Start-up Support Foundation is continuing to provide such lectures and events to guide KU students who are interested in starting a startup.
