Presenting at Braintree Business Development Center on IP Law for Business and Entrepreneurs – June 16, 2016.

Posted in General Commentary by Jake Ward on May 23, 2016

You Don’t Need a Patent If: Intellectual Property Law for Business and Entrepreneurs.

The Braintree Business Development Center will host a program on intellectual property protection, covering inventions, patents, trademarks, and copyrights on Thursday June 16, 2016 from 9:30AM to 11:30AM.  The seminar will be held at the Braintree Business Development Center, 201 East Fifth Street Mansfield, OH 44902.

In considering IP protection, one type of IP generally comes to mind – patents.  However, while often valuable, patent protection is sometimes inappropriate for the circumstances.  Other forms of intellectual property, including trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets, can sometimes better serve an entrepreneur.  This seminar will discuss various scenarios in which patent protection may not be necessary, and how other types of IP can be used to greater effect.  Key distinctions between patents and the other types of IP will also be discussed.

Jacob M. Ward, Registered Patent Attorney with the law firm of Fraser Clemens Martin & Miller LLC, will present the seminar. The program is free and open to the public.

More details about the program and a registration form may be found here.  Space is limited, so please RSVP at the provided link, or contact Mr. Bob Cohen at 419-525-1614 or bcohen@braintreepartners.org.
