PATENTLY GOOD IDEAS: INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAW FOR ENTREPRENEURS AND BUSINESS

The Muskegon Inventors Network (MIN) will host a program on intellectual property protection, covering inventions, patents, trademarks and copyrights on Wednesday, July 26, 2017 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. The seminar will be held at the Muskegon Innovation Hub at Grand Valley State University 200 Viridian Drive, Muskegon, Michigan 49440.

Every business has intellectual property (IP), in one form or another. Protecting IP is important, but it can also be expensive. With startups especially, every dollar matters. Therefore, deciding whether and how to spend funds on IP protection is a key question that should be answered in the early stages of every new business.

Jacob M. Ward, Registered Patent Attorney and founding member of Ward Law Office LLC, will present the seminar. The seminar is free and open to the public.

More details about the program and a registration form may be found here.
