We’ve designed this high-quality IP law primer as a convenient way to ensure your entire community of innovators has a firm grasp on how to preserve the rights to their valuable technologies…
Faculty and student inventors on your campus don’t typically have a full or clear understanding of intellectual property law — and the consequences of simple errors that arise from that lack of knowledge can be devastating to future patent protection and commercialization plans. That’s why our Distance Learning Division has scheduled an outstanding primer on IP and patent law — specifically designed for you to share with your entire community of innovators.
Invite your entire staff and faculty to participate. It’s an efficient, low-cost, easy way to help ensure your researchers understand their role in IP creation and protection. Join IP law expert Brendan O. Baggot, principal with Schaefer O’Neill, for a 60-minute session covering the key legal issues your researchers must be aware of:
- Review the different types of intellectual property, and protection of each:
- Protecting trade secrets from inception to commercialization
- The Bayh-Dole Act and the role of the tech transfer office
