IP Insurance for Business Conference

On 2 July 2015 the Intellectual Property Office held a conference on IP insurance for business at the offices of the Association of British Insurers in Gresham Street. As I have written a lot of articles about IP insurance over the last 10 years I attended the conference with my colleague Ruhi Sethi. Many of the great and the good in intellectual property were there including Mr Justice Arnold, the senior patents judge and Andrea Brewster, president of the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys.

Although the title of the conference was IP Insurance for Business its subject matter was very much wider, As you can see from the slides, only David Bloom of Safeguard IP and Dids Macdonld of ACID actually discussed IP insurance. I found Macdonld's speech particularly interesting in that she gave some details of an insurance scheme for ACID members which she had set up with Sybaris Legal and IP. That's the sort of deal I should like to negotiate for private inventors.
