What Consultants and Businesses Need To Know About Recent Developments In Patent Laws

Tuesday, December 3, 2013, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Louis J. Knobbe Conference Center,
2040 Main St., 2nd Floor,
Irvine, CA 92614

Food and beverages will be provided by Knobbe Martens

Parking:  From Main Street, turn south on Mercantile (past El Torito Grill). Cross Morse (stop sign) and look for the 2040 building. Park in the structure with that same number. Knobbe Martens will validate. Parking should be free, since attendants leave before 7:00 p.m.

Patent laws have undergone drastic changes in the last few years, but what do all of these changes mean to the non-patent lawyer, consultant, businessperson, or engineer?

On Tuesday, December 3, starting at 5:30 p.m., a panel of intellectual property (IP) partners from Knobbe Martens will explain how recent developments in IP influence the way businesses operate and how engineers now need approach IP. Topics will include strategies for protecting your inventions under the new first-inventor-to-file system, what is still patentable in view of recent U.S. Supreme Court cases, how to get your patents quickly, what is a patent "troll,” and why this may matter to you.

This event is at the invitation of Knobbe Martens and is expected to fill their Conference Center with attendees from outside of IMC, so don't delay your RSVP.
