Intellectual Property and Patents 101 - For TechShop Members

The wheel ... sliced bread ... You've created the next great invention. What’s next?

Did you know there are several options available to protect your ideas, ranging from copyrights and trade secrets to patents? Did you know that you can get “patent pending” status for your idea for less than $150? And did you know that sometimes the best way to protect your idea is to make it public information?

In this two-hour workshop, an associate from Dobrusin Law Firm will navigate you through the world of intellectual property and patents.

This workshop is not legal advice.

This workshop is open to all TechShop members and is FREE!

    Hello All,
    I just wanted to let everyone know that I was just contacted by the Attorney who was going to give the workshop, and unfortunately they had to cancel this month's Intellectual Property Workshop due to a scheduling conflict. I have been assured that the next Intellectual Property Workshop, on August 17th will happen no matter what. I feel absolutely awful that the workshop is being moved again, but I do hope you will be able to join us on August 17th. I hope to see you all there,
