F.I.R.E. Series: “Patent Laws Are Changing — Are You Prepared?” Tuesday, February 12 at 12pm!

changeThe Office of Technology Transfer, in cooperation with the Center for Entrepreneurship proudly present F.I.R.E. in February: 

“Patent Laws Are Changing — Are You Prepared?”

Changes to patent law take place on 16 March 2013 under the America Invents Act. The “first to invent” system we are all used to in the United States will switch over to a “first to file” system.

Kathryn Doyle , Ph.D., J.D., Partner and Chair of Riverside Law will discuss what these changes mean and if it makes sense to file before the changes take place, or after.

Where: the Class of ’62 Auditorium (G-9425 & 1-9425)
When: Tuesday, 12 February 2013, 12:00 – 1:00 PM

A light lunch will be served following the presentation. Please contact David Englert, or call 585.276.6615 for more information or to register for this event.

Although the F.I.R.E. Series continues to be free and open to the public, a small fee for parking may apply (usually between $5 and $6). Registration would be appreciated by noon Monday, 11 February 2013.

  1. Great – I should certainly pronounce, impressed with your site.

    I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs as well as related information ended up being truly
    simple to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it at all.
    Quite unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add
    forums or something, site theme . a tones way for your client to
    communicate. Nice task..
