Intellectual Property Primer for Non-Attorneys


By David Schwartz
Published: August 17th, 2021

Everyone in the commercialization pipeline must have a fundamental knowledge of how to identify intellectual property, how to help ensure its protection, and what their role is in that process. As every TTO can attest, just one conversation, one publication, or one forgotten contribution can put your IP in jeopardy.

This introductory, one-hour distance learning program focuses on the different categories of IP and the creator’s role in protecting each of them. This expert consult with a leading attorney is specifically designed for faculty, students, and others who need a good working understanding of the IP landscape – and their role in it.  

Attorney Tyson Benson, with Vivaqua Crane IP Law, leads this concise but comprehensive primer covering each type of intellectual property — how it’s protected, and how that protection can be lost or endangered. Mr. Benson offers clear guidance for IP creators on how they can work with your TTO and be an effective part of the IP creation and protection team.

Keep this program in your training “library” and use it throughout your organization whenever the need arises. Give faculty, staff, and student innovators the baseline knowledge they need to engage with the university commercialization enterprise. Click here for more details.
