Federal intellectual property laws provide valuable tools for protecting new products and services. Benefiting from these tools requires careful, informed planning in the early stages of new product development in view of the applicable laws and their time limitations.

This seminar will concentrate on key aspects of federal patent, trademark and copyright laws for anyone developing a new product or service.

The following topics are selected to provide the participant with the knowledge needed to obtain the greatest benefit afforded by US intellectual property laws:

• What do patents, trademarks and copyrights protect?
• Taking action – When must you act & when can you delay to defer costs
• Maximizing value – Patent application timeliness & adequacy of disclosure
• Maximizing value – Trademark timing & selection
• Maximizing value – Copyright timing & registration

Wendy Thai is a registered patent attorney who practices exclusively in the federal patent, trademark and copyright areas. Wendy has been a patent attorney for 12 years.
