Don’t let IP protection slip away due to simple misunderstandings and easy-to-prevent mistakes or oversights

It’s no secret that faculty researchers don’t typically have a clear understanding of intellectual property law – but the consequences of simple errors that arise from lack of basic know-how 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 PIs and faculty investors.

For one low price, you can invite your entire staff and faculty to attend – plus keep the video recording to share with researchers at their convenience. It’s an efficient, low-cost, convenient way to ensure faculty understand their role in IP creation and protection. Join IP law expert Eugenia (Gina) Carter of Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek for a 90-minute program covering all the key legal issues your researchers must be aware of:

  • Insightful overview of US intellectual property protection in:
    • Patents
    • Copyrights
    • Trademarks
  • Bayh-Dole Act

    • Future of Bayh-Dole
  • Common mistakes that jeopardize IP protection
