Spring Guest Lecture: “Intellectual Property Law – Why It Matters To Business”

On Tuesday 24th February, Vesalius College hosted the lecture “Intellectual Property Law: Why It Matters To Business” with Prof. Stephanie Gardner J.D. from our Business Department, and Mr. Bruno Vandermeulen, an Intellectual Property litigation lawyer and partner at Bird & Bird, Belgium.

The lecture provided an comprehensive overview of the prevailing three intellectual property rights (IPR) of patents, trademarks and copyrights, and the implications such rights are playing in businesses today and potentially in the future. Mr. Vandermeulen also shared some case studies in order to better illustrate the complexity and grey zones of some intellectual property claims for which numerous questions and scenarios were put forward by an eager and curious young audience.
