I convinced my brilliant IP attorney, Steven Thrasher, to co-host a webinar giving away free advice and an NDA which he typically sells for nearly $1,000! Here is a link to the deck Stop people from stealing your stuff
And here are the links to the first hour and second hours. There were some real "gems" at the very end of the second hour!
You can download the deck here.
Join us next Tuesday, 05/21 @ 4 EST for a free overview of: 5 Secret Steps Pros Use to Identify & Protect Your IP
In the Webinar we will discuss:
- When to file: File as soon as it’s being used
- Takes one or two weeks to prepare and file, 9-18 months for Examination
- Last for as long as you use it
- When to file: File as soon as it’s published
- Takes about one week to prepare and file, 9-18 months for Examination
- Last for 70 years from creator’s death, or 100 years for corporations
- “Any” apparatus or process, recent “judicial exceptions” currently pending in Congress
- When to file: File as soon as possible -- the US Is a First to Invent Country
- Takes about one week to prepare and file provisional, about four weeks for a design, about 4-6 weeks for a utility application. Add 9-18 months for first Examination, double the time for correspondence and USPTO visits. Can expedite but $$$
- Last for 20 years from date filed
- “Any” information that gives a competitive advantage and is secret
- When to file: no filing, but must be able to demonstrate “protected secret” (NDAs, locks, tracking, etc)
- Takes diligence to set up and maintain program
- Last as long as the information is secret and gives competitive advantage
As always the second hour we will field questions on any AutoHotkey topic. Make sure you register for it and future webinars .
