Online course helps companies educate employees and supply chain partners about

intellectual property (IP) and how to protect it

Washington DC - July 29, 2014 - Companies seeking to better protect intellectual

property can now use CREATe.org's e-Learning Course "Introduction to

Intellectual Property," a 15-minute interactive course designed to help

companies educate their employees and third party partners about the importance

of IP. It features:

* An overview of intellectual property, including copyrights, trade secrets,

design rights, patents and trademarks;

* A variety of scenarios, designed to help employees and partners understand

how IP can be compromised, both intentionally and inadvertently;

* Clear steps that employees or supply chain and business partners can take to

protect their company's IP;

* Interactive examples prompting users to consider specific examples of IP and

ways to avoid misappropriation; and

* Knowledge checks to increase retention and assess knowledge gained from the


This course and the CREATe Leading Practices for IP Protection service are

designed to provide companies with practical, cost-effective ways to put systems

and business processes in place to mitigate the risks of counterfeiting, piracy,

trade secret theft and other types of IP infringement.

"Intellectual property in the form of trademarks, patents, trade secrets,

copyright and design rights, are at the core of a company's value and

competitive advantage - however, many employees and supply chain partners put

these crown jewels at risk due to a lack of understanding of the assets and how

to protect them. This course provides an effective way to train a broad range of

employees or partners on the types of IP and how to protect it," stated Pamela

Passman, President and CEO of the Center for Responsible Enterprise and Trade


The Introduction to IP course is available in English and will soon be available

in Chinese, Spanish and Portuguese. Organizations that are interested in
