Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Intellectual property, particularly patents, are crucial assets for any entrepreneur starting a new business. However, too often mistakes are made that either jeopardize a company's patent rights or overlook the impact of another party's patents on the company's ability to do business. Learn how to avoid the IP surprises that can kill an investment during due diligence and how to best position your company's IP and maximize its value.

We will address the following important topics:

Why obtaining a patent doesn't give you the ability to sell your product?
How to avoid activities that can cause a loss of patent rights?
How to minimize the risks of infringing third party patents?
How to secure ownership in your company's IP!
What scope of protection should your patents be seeking?
How to allocate your investment dollars effectively on your IP strategy?
