Abstract: S32.00002 : Intellectual Property for Entrepreneurs: Master or Disaster?
11:51 AM–12:27 PM
Do you know what it takes to be the master of your own intellectual property? Don’t make the same mistakes that others have made, and instead, learn about real-life disasters regarding patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets. Hear actual stories about the significant differences between sole ownership and co-ownership of intellectual property, what is permitted under the “fair use” of someone else’s intellectual property, the consequences of waiting too long to protect your intellectual property, and much more!
