THURSDAY July 21, 2011
SCV PACE (Professional Activities Committee for Engineers)
Speaker: Orin E. Laney, former chair of the IEEE-USA Intellectual Property Committee
Time: 6:30 PM
Cost: none
Place: KeyPoint Credit Union, 2805 Bowers Avenue, Santa Clara
RSVP: from website

This is not a talk on patents and copyrights, but goes far beyond such things.? The focus is on the division of intellectual property rights between yourself as a creative person and those you perform labor for, whether as an employee, consultant, or independent creative person.
Every schematic, code listing, and disclosure has intellectual property rights that automatically attach upon creation.? The way you handle these will determine your legal standing to own and exploit the fruits of your labor â?? or not â?? depending on what you sign and the actions you take.? The core of this talk is an eye-opening career strategy for protection of personal intellectual property.? Key intellectual property opportunities and pitfalls will be discussed.
Case histories â?? some of them hair-raising â?? will be used to underscore salient points.? This is a must-hear talk for anyone with aspirations beyond toiling for a salary, especially those with entrepreneurial plans.? Even if you simply want to pursue a hobby in a technical field, there are lessons that can help you avoid unexpected intellectual property tar pits.
