Attorneys from Osha Liang, an intellectual property law firm with offices worldwide, will discuss patent rights, options for accelerating patent applications in the U.S., and common pitfalls regarding government funding and business arrangements as they relate to patent, copyright, and trademark rights.
As emerging technologies (e.g., biotech, IT, renewable energy, semiconductors, software, nanotechnology) continue to grow, patent rights become increasingly important. However, obtaining a patent can take over 3 years and is an expensive process. Without a granted patent, the ability to sell, license, manufacture, and deter competitors is severely limited. Quickly attaining a patent is valuable—find out how!
Attendees of this free seminar will learn patent basics, expedited methods in attaining a patent, and intellectual property issues stemming from government funding and business arrangements.Osha-Liang will provide complimentary sandwiches and refreshments. This is a multi-Meetup event; many attendees will be there.
