IP Basics is the first part of the IPTK. It has been designed for teachers of students with little or no prior knowledge of IP, in order to provide them with a basic introduction to a range of different IP rights. The material is available online in English.
IP Basics gives you the tools you need to put together an introductory lecture on IP lasting between one and two hours.
It covers patents, databases, trade marks, designs, geographical indications, utility models, plant variety rights, semiconductor topography rights, copyright and trade secrets, and includes a classroom exercise that demonstrates the use of IP in the real world.
