Welcome to the Everything Intellectual Property Law Podcast.
I’m your Host, Hibbatun- Nasser Adeola Shobambi, I’m a Lawyer, Content-Creator, an Intellectual Property and Technology Enthusiast and I’d also like to consider myself, a creative at heart.
I found a way to combine my interests to create and produce the foremost intellectual property & tech law podcast in Nigeria.
This is officially our first Podisode. And I’m very excited to share with you all, the vision behind the EIP Law Podcast and what to expect from subsequent episodes.
But Before I get to that, I want to say this just incase you’re wondering why Intellectual Property ("IP") should be of any importance to you.
Well, with the increasing advancement of creative ideas and technology in various industries, intellectual property assets are also evolving in importance on a continuous basis. In fact, Intellectual property has been dubbed the Crude oil of the 21st century.
So what is Intellectual Property??? It is a creation of the mind which can be manifested in various forms. For me, Intellectual Property transcends just the protection of Creative or innovative ideas. Its applicability cuts across a diverse range of sectors and is crucial in today’s global Economic Growth.
Now more than ever, businesses are starting realize the power of Intangible Assets and more so, the need to Prioritize IP Assets in order to thrive in our current economic climate.
It’s no surprise that some of the richest companies in the world such as Microsoft, Apple, Amazon and the likes are where they are today because they have fully utilized their IP Assets.
Besides the fact that IP assets can significantly increase the value of a business and its income, IP can serve as strong leverage when entering into business arrangements.
So you see, there’s a need to be able to identify, value and protect our Intangible assets and this is where we come in.
The EIP Podcast series will show you how to Leverage and protect your most important asset. We will also address budding issues in the Nigerian Intellectual Property & Technology space.
And by stirring up these important conversations regarding IP & Technology laws, We hope to positively influence the development of IP & technology related laws in Nigeria
