In his presentation entitled “Design Ownership–Where Law Meets Design to Feed the Bottom Line,” Mr. Cohen used iconic product designs to illustrate the concept of “design ownership” and its crucial role in business success. Mr. Cohen also shared strategies aimed to achieve design ownership by securing comprehensive IP protection, avoiding IP rights of others, and integrating IP-building efforts into the design process.
