Kenya Copyrights Board Trains Staff, Students
Technical University of Mombasa has sought the intervention of the Kenya Copyrights Board (KECOBO) in its bed to protect intellectual property from staff and students.
The Directorate of Research, Innovation and Extension in collaboration with KECOBO organized a two-day training session aimed at enlightening participants on copyright issues.
Research, Innovation and Extension director Professor Saeed Mwaguni said the training by KECOBO was in line with ensuring ideas, innovations and inventions by TUM staff and students are protected.
“We have made tremendous progress in the area of innovations and inventions hence the need for not only creation of copyright awareness but also the entire process of registering the same with the relevant agency,” said Mwaguni.
KECOBO Acting Chief Legal Counsel George Nyakweba who was flanked by colleagues Emily Kalekye and Howard Okiror took participants drawn from all the faculties and department through the session.
