The June installment of the Innovator Series on IP Layering: Trade Secrets and Patents will feature IAC co-founder Peter Cowan (Founder and Principal Consultant at Northworks IP), Mike McLean (VP IP Operations & Transactions at IAC) with Cynthia Shippam (Industry Technical Advisor with the National Research Council-IRAP) in conversation about these two important types of IP protection and how to contextualize them within your business strategy.
Attendees will learn key considerations of layering patents and trade secrets and the overall benefits of a nuanced approach to setting and implementing an IP strategy. Panelists will showcase some lessons learned from their many years of experience as experts in the field, and answer audience questions to provide attendees with a road map to start considering a layered IP strategy of their own.
Members get more: IAC Members will get the recorded webinar as well as takeaway slides with key points and action items from the panelists. The July networking session will offer another chance for members to follow up with the IAC IP experts and ask questions about the webinar topic or any other IP-related issues.
