Science, Technology, and Intellectual Property
Tuesday, November 2, 2010
The New York Academy of Sciences
Presented by the Science Alliance
Intellectual property (IP) is the foundation of all technology ventures, yet the laws governing and protecting IP rights are unfamiliar territory for most scientists. This seminar will provide an in-depth look at the classification of patents, trade secrets, copyrights, and trademarks- critical information for scientists considering commercializing their innovations or involved in an entrepreneurial endeavor.
Experienced IP attorneys will present the fundamentals and the interplay among these four types of IP and then venture capitalist David Anthony will lead a case study discussion to demonstrate the real world applicability. Attendees will come away with a better understanding of how to evaluate the place of innovations in the intellectual property market.
This is the first event of a four part series.
