|Will there be any crumbs left ...?|
All in all, London 2012 is a massive cake and the biggest slices have already gone to major businesses and massive law firms. But can small and solo IP practitioners expect to get any crumbs at all from this gigantic sportfest? The sale of fake tickets and Olympic merchandise, and the carrying on of sundry other illegal activities, is likely to generate a bit of work for those with criminal practices but, it seems to me, the experience of most small IP practices is firmly entrenched in the civil side of life.
Have SOLO IP readers made any contingency plans for the Olympic fortnight? Possibilities include the following:
- Alerting local Chamber of Commerce, Rotary contacts etc to the importance of IP and your experience in the field;
- Hiring a decent TV for the duration and installing it conveniently in your office in case things get quiet;
- Shut up shop and attend some events;
- Leave the country till things get back to normal.
Any other suggestions?
