Monday, November 12, 2012
When you create a work of art, a design for a product, or have an idea that you want to protect, what sort of protections are available to you under the law? This workshop will provide a basic grounding of intellectual property systems under copyright, patents, and trade secret law with a focus on understainding how each of these systems can be used for a variety of applications. The focus will be on the type of work thats been created and what the creator of the work intends to do with it from commercial applications to protection against copying. Jonathan D-Silva is a patent attorney with Erie's MacDonald, Illig, Jones & Britton Law firm, who practices various aspects of intellectual property law from prosecuting patent, trademark and copyright applications to drafting agreements for the sale or licensing of intellectual propery to the enforcement of intellectual property rights. Jonathan works to protect his client's intellectual property locally, state-wide, nationally and internationally.
Workshop is free and only available to Edinboro University students, faculty, staff and StARTup Incubator members.
Seating is limited and registration is required. Please call The Porrreco Center at 732-2544 to register for this workshop.
