F.I.R.E. Series – November 3, 2011

The Offices of Technology Transfer, in cooperation with the Center for Entrepreneurship proudly present F.I.R.E. in November:

“The Basics of the Patenting Process”

Filing a patent application is one of the surest methods of securing intellectual property protection. An understanding of the basics of this process is important for any researcher, inventor, or entrepreneur. With the recent passage of the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act, a reexamination of this topic is appropriate and timely.

Where: the Class of ’62 Auditorium (G-9425 & 1-9425)
When: Thursday, 3 November 2011, 9:00 – 10:00 AM

Our presenter this month is J. Gibson Lanier, Ph.D., J.D., a patent attorney with Ballard Spahr in Atlanta, GA. Dr. Lanier has been working with the University’s patent portfolio and presenting at the F.I.R.E. Series since 2003.

Please note that due to a scheduling conflict, this presentation will
be held on the first Thursday of November.

Although the F.I.R.E. Series continues to be free and open to the public, a small fee for parking may apply (between $4 and $6). Registration would be appreciated by noon Tuesday, 1 November 2011.

Refreshments will be served. Please contact David Englert, or call 585.784.8856 for more information or to register for this event.
