September 16, 2014: Commercializing Technical Products

 

This seminar will be conducted by Doug Lineberry and Jim Denning, Attorneys at Law, with the McNair Law Firm in Greenville, SC.

 

Doug will explain the various ways that an inventor can protect his/her product: patents, trademarks, trade secrets and/or copyrights. He will review the filing process for each and the usual costs involved. He will explain the need for preliminary drawings (needed for filings) and how to work with design engineers and product developers so that the product is ready for manufacturing.  Doug will also                 discuss the need for and proper contents of a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) that can be used by inventors as the business plan is developed and initial discussions take place with suppliers, partners and/or investors.

 

Jim will review legal structures available to inventors and the benefits of each, depending on the type of product, how you plan to fund and grow, and other considerations.  Jim will also       discuss how to establish relationships with product designers, developers, manufacturers, and distributors through the use of contracts. He will provide an overview of key elements of licensing agreements.
