About the Event
Workshop Description: It is an American cliche to be a successful inventor like A.G. Bell, Edison and so many others. But that dream eludes most would-be inventors -- even those with truly great ideas. Why? Patent lawyers have the privilege of witnessing, first-hand, the failures and successes of their inventor-clients. After more than 30 years working with hundreds and hundreds of inventors, Jon Shackelford shares his unique patent attorney's perspective about what to do, and what to avoid, with a clever idea. Jon's approaches will favor the cost-conscience and "hobby" inventors. In addition to a desire to learn some best practices for parlaying an invention, bring any group-appropriate intellectual property questions for Jon.
