MAY 15, 2013 - 7:30AM-9:30AM


The competition among corporations for ownership and control of new technology in the 21st century is growing more intense.  Your personal grasp of basic intellectual property principles, including patents, trademarks, copyright and trade secrets, matters to you and to your employer.  Your awareness of best practices, what to do and what not to do to protect your company's intellectual property assets, and to avoid infringement of others, can make a difference.
