Limited Capacity seats available

Intellectual Property (IP) information is vital for a new business venture. You can protect your idea, product, or business with the appropriate IP: copyright, patent, or trademark. This session will briefly review IP types and then introduce Prior Art searching, which helps you to discover competing IP and determine how new your idea or product may be. These skills will save you money normally charged by an IP lawyer, but you will also find out about free legal and information services available for entrepreneurs.
