Owning What You Think You Own - Avoiding Pitfalls in IP Rights and Assignments

September 21, 2011

Patent protection can be critical to a company’s ability to compete in the marketplace and secure financing for its growth.  Pitfalls lurk at every stage of the patenting process, ranging from an inability to prosecute a patent application on a former employee’s key invention, to a last-minute collapse of a financing because of IP issues, to a competitor actually owning rights to a key product because a word was missing from an employment agreement.

David Brody and David Thibodeau will address these issues from different perspectives on employee invention assignment agreements and due diligence checklists.

Networking and breakfast begin at 7:30 am.  Program begins at 8:00 am.
