"This book democratises intellectual property and makes it accessible for all to use and understand." -- Nelson Mandela "Confucius says 'My education is open to everyone.' I say 'This book makes everyone understand intellectual property.'"-- Jackie Chan "Designers need to know how best to protect their creations. This book tells you how." -- Stella McCartney "... a chatty, inviting resource for anyone who's interested in protecting a great idea, but isn't sure whether a trademark, copyright, utility or design patent will do the trick... This valuable guide for aspiring entrepreneurial thinkers provides overall principles for thinking through the basics of intellectual property (e.g., establish your idea first), while sharing hands-on tips, such as how to make your trademark distinctive yet not too cute." -- Publishers WeeklyAbout the Author:
