Within the tech community, there are many makers, many innovators and many entrepreneurs with great ideas. But how does one protect their ideas?
This is exactly what caught the eye of the Patent Pro Bono program at Widener University and it’s the reason why it’s hosting a free half-day workshop entitled Law for Creators.
The workshop will take place Saturday, Oct. 29 at 9 a.m. in the Ruby R. Vale Moot Courtroom within Delaware Law School at Widener University.
Professor Alan Garfield, who helped organize the workshop, thinks members of the tech community should attend because their ideas are worth protecting.
“The creators are the audience, the inventors, the artists, the small business owners, we’re going to give them a sense of the legal rights that exist for inventions and works of authorship and brand names,” says Garfield.
Presentations will be made by not students, but seasoned law professionals that will focus on the differences between patent, copyright and trademark law. The workshop will have two sessions, an early morning introductory session that will teach you about all the basics and a late morning session with breakout groups that will go into each of the workshop tracks.
Garfield hopes to make this an annual workshop at Widener University.
