[MaGIC Webinar] Freedom-to-Operate (FTO): Necessary to Avoid IP Infringement

In light of the ongoing Movement Control Order (MCO) and MaGIC’s recent survey having conclusive data that only 2.9% of start-ups are confident in surviving through MCO -  MaGIC will be bringing you its Webinar series, a platform for online live sessions with industry experts and entrepreneurs to shed light on the various ways to strategise and thrive in a time of crisis, such as the one brought about by the COVID-19.

Each topic in the series will dive into the different areas of business and offer tools and insights for business sustainability, followed by a Q&A session. We at MaGIC will strive to provide a platform of support for our entrepreneurs as best we can.

The Session

Conducting Freedom-to-Operate (FTO) search before embarking on full-scale commercialisation activity may reduce the risk of infringing another party's IP rights.

Infringement suits are typically messy, long-drawn and often very expensive, therefore the necessity of having a proper FTO search undertaken prior to commercialisation is crucial.

In this webinar session, Intellectual Property expert Abdur Rahim will be covering the fundamentals of FTO and how it is conducted.
