*Come to a presentation hosted by the UCAR Office of General Counsel at
9:00am on Nov.8th in the CG-1 South Auditorium to find out how*
Patent and intellectual property protection is an important topic for
all scientists and engineers at UCAR and NCAR. With the passage of the
America Invents Act, patent laws have radically changed to protect the
first-to-file rather than the first-to-invent. The Act also authorizes
certain administrative changes that are expected to help the United
States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) more effectively address the
backlog of patent applications.
How will the new law impact scientists and engineers? Come find out at a
presentation hosted by the UCAR Office of General Counsel on *Tuesday,
November 8th from 9:00am to 10:30am in the CG-1 South Auditorium (room
1210)*. The UCAR Office of General Counsel has teamed up with
registered patent attorneys, Curt Ollila and David Wilbert, to explain
the legal changes included in the Act and the practical impact of these
changes on inventors and on institutions like UCAR.
Please RSVP to this presentation by November 7th.
