It’s Innovative, Creative and Lucrative...but is it Patentable? -Lunch and Learn

Join us for this lunch and learn.

Your ideas are valuable. Your company’s ideas are your investment. And patents are a key way to protect and even monetize them. But what can be patented? What might be better suited for a copyright, trademark or even trade secret? We’ll cover what’s patentable and do a hands-on walk through of the challenges that can make or break your idea on its path to becoming a patent.

Jeremy is a Sr. IP Attorney in Intellectual Ventures’ Patent Prosecution & Asset Management team where he manages a portfolio of ~900 pending patent applications, as well as IV’s trademark portfolio. Prior to coming to IV, Jeremy served as senior counsel at Alliant Techsystems, Chief IP Counsel at James Hardie Research & Building Products, and as an attorney at Knobbe Martens Olson and Bear LLP.

    I wasn't aware of some of the differences and intricacies between trademarks, patents, copyrights, and trade secrets. Very helpful information, especially around wording and key phrases to use or not use.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
