Scenes from Last Year's Corporate Patent Seminar 2006
The Corporate Patent Seminar is for corporate patent professionals. It is organized by an ad hoc non-profit association of senior corporate patent professionals dedicated to the effective and healthy exchange of ideas and experiences in the area of intellectual property law and corporate practice. Because of the nature of Corporate Patent Seminar's Roundtable Discussions and format, attendance is limited. Registrations received above our attendance cut off will unfortunately have to be returned. To ensure your place at this years seminar please register early!
In addition to having a series of talks on topics of interest for in-house IP counsel, this year's annual meeting will include the following features:
- “This seminar absolutely provides the most bang for the buck. Just compare the costs.”
- “I have heard several design patent speakers before and this was the best by far.”
- “The smaller size really provides an opportunity to build new contacts and the addition of international attendees/speakers is a real plus.”
