Legal questions? Register today: Adventures in Intellectual Property Series

March 11, 2010 at 2:50 pm Leave a comment

Every organization has intellectual property in some form. Social enterprises are no different.  In fact, in some cases the social mission of an organization depends upon the ability of the social enterprise to develop, acquire, protect or license intellectual property rights.  The key to protecting this valuable asset begins with understanding what types of intellectual property a company may have, what specific rights are involved, and what actions need to be taken to protect those rights. 

As part of their continuing series of legal education seminars Swider Medeiros Haver and Portland State University’s Social Innovation Incubator in conjunction with MercyCorps NW are pleased to announce the next series of legal education seminars entitled “Choose Your Own Adventure (In Intellectual Property.)” 

This seminar series will cover each basic area of intellectual property beginning with the earliest stage – the idea.  Specific intellectual property topics will be covered in three subsequent seminars. 

LOCATION: All events are held at MercyCorpsNW from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm.

REGISTER: Please email events@smhllaw.com for details. You can register for each event independently.
