New Patent Laws - How You As An Inventor Can Work The New System To Your Advantage
Featured Speaker
Damon Kali
Registered Patent Attorney

Learn How To Work Under The New Patent Laws

Learn how to work under the new patent laws recently approved in March 2013.

Get a patent attorney's perspective about the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act.  The biggest change is a shift from a -first-to-invent- emphasis to a -first-inventor-to-file- system, however there are many other changes you as an inventor need to know and understand.

Last month John Calvert from the patent office shared with us the basics of the new laws. He did a fantastic job, however many attendees were still confused as to how they can work within this new system. 

This month, Patent attorney Damon Kali will share with you how you can work the new patent laws to your advantage.

Damon will share with you his perspective for inventors on the subject and how to protect your inventions under the new law.
