Intellectual property protection is a critical part of a small business owner’s current and future growth strategy. According to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s Web site, companies that protect their intellectual property drive more economic growth in the U.S. than any other single sector. Unfortunately, small businesses are more vulnerable than any other sector to piracy, counterfeiting, and the theft of their intellectual property. Small business owners oftentimes simply don’t have access to the intellectual property protection know-how that larger corporations do, especially how the new the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (AIA) will impact patent application filing strategies.
Several Topics to be Discussed:
Ÿ Understand the Difference between Patents, Trademarks, Copyrights and Other Forms of Intellectual Property Protection
Ÿ Learn When and How to Apply for a Patent
Ÿ Learn Patent Application Filing Strategies In view of the New Patent Law (AIA)
Ÿ Learn Differences Between US and Foreign Patent Laws and Pitfalls to Watch Out For
Ÿ Learn How to Safeguard Your Company From Patent Infringement Lawsuits
Ÿ Learn What to do to Protect Your Company’s Products and Brands from Knock-offs
Ÿ Learn How to Register Your Trademark
