IPRs - Intellectual property rights

Tobias Kleimann

Horn Kleimann Waitzhofer (Munich, Germany)

Intellectual property (IP) refers to innovative ideas in terms of branding, design, know-how and technical innovations. Why should researchers care for protection of their ideas? The seminar will give an introduction to IP rights and the requisites for their procurement and enforcement. Some aspects of software patents and the rights and obligations of (university) employee inventors are discussed as well.

Brief Bio:

Tobias Kleimann studied physics in Germany, Sweden and Italy and obtained a PhD in theoretical physics in 2003. His research was focused on electric transport through quantum wires and quantum dots. Tobias became a German patent and trademark attorney in 2006 and European patent attorney in 2007. He is co-founder of Horn Kleimann Waitzhofer (est. 2009) and supports clients in procuring and enforcing their innovation-based IPRs.
