Practical Intellectual Property Strategies for Engineers and Geoscientists Seminar. This seminar will delve into the practical details of managing intellectual property, focusing on the ownership of IP, mitigating IP-related risk, and acquiring and using IP, with a focus on trade-marks, copyright, patents and trade secrets.

Participants of this seminar will understand how to recognize and resolve ownership issues regarding intellectual property between employees, subcontractors, and clients, including:
  • Who owns the intellectual property in your work?
  • What rights does your client obtain to use your work now and in the future?
  • What rights do you retain to re-use your work or portions of your work for another client or another project?
The following topics will also be covered:
Contracts: How to effectively define your relationships with your clients and others, including:
  • Protection of intellectual property
  • Use of intellectual property
  • Confidentiality
  • Warranties and indemnities
  • Review of specific contract language

Disputes: How to prepare now to better handle problems in the future.
There will be a detailed Question and Answer session. Please come prepared with questions you may have on any intellectual property issue.
