Learn to Protect Your Intellectual Property Rights

Learn to Protect Your Intellectual Property Rights

On August 16, join local business leaders for an event diving into the details of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), sponsored in partnership with South Carolina Manufacturing, The Brickyard, InnoVision, SCRA and the Douglas Kim Law Firm. Business is booming in South Carolina, and across the state, innovation is driving economic and technological developments. But just like any other asset, that innovation must be protected. In fact, the U.S. Department of Commerce noted on July 7, 2016 that, “Intellectual property protection is critical to fostering innovation. Without the protection of ideas, businesses and individuals would not reap the full benefits of their inventions and would focus less on research and development.”

While more and more business owners and innovators are realizing the importance of protecting their intellectual property legally, the initial protection of ideas, research and developments is only one part of the formula; companies who learn how to leverage their IPR through a fully-developed strategy can push ahead of others in what oftentimes can be a race against time itself.

Our presenters will discuss their own IPR strategies—strategies that they confirm have contributed to the successes of their businesses. Presenting will be:

  • Doug Kim, an attorney practicing in Intellectual Property with the Douglas Kim Law Firm;
  • Ralph Hulseman, CEO of Hoowaki, LLC;
  • Cody Reynolds, Tech Transfer for Greenville Health System;
  • Steve Johnson, Regional Manager for SC Launch; and,
  • Nicole Johnson, Trademarks, Branding and Marketing, Boyd Cycling.

This presentation, held at The Brickyard (400 Birnie St, Suite J, Greenville) will begin at 4 p.m. and include an overview of IPR, a panel discussion with entities that create, value and have directly benefited from IPR. A networking session will follow at 5:45 p.m.
