About this event

"Is Your Idea Totally Unpatentable?"

Come learn how ONE word can put your patent in danger.

Can you afford to invest all your time, hard work and blood, sweat and tears do go down the drain because you were not an informed entrepreneur and your patent is void?

Did you know most attorneys charge you $6,000-8,000.00 and never do a patent search?

This evening can save you thousands and possibly millions should your idea/invention go one to be a success ( as long as your patent is correct.) 

     *Understanding your role of the inventor//entrepreneur

     *Role of the patent - understand how the patent is examined (and why that CYA)

     *Common pitfalls to avoid and save you heartache

     *Your patent rises and falls under the claim - do you understand the patent claim?

     *Recent case law

You will make this decision as an entrepreneur sooner or later. Be informed, know what to look for and make sure you make a precise ask from your attorney--be a savvy legal consumer.
