You have what you think is a unique invention. Is it and can you protect it? Mickey Cooper may have the answers during a program sponsored by Fairfield University, 1073 N. Benson Road in Fairfield on Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. in Library Room 101. The event is free and open to the public.
Cooper is a partner in the Southport office of the intellectual property law firm Ryan, Mason & Lewis LLP. He also teaches management of intellectual property at Fairfield’s School of Engineering. He is the intellectual property adviser for Fairfield StartUp, the annual Fairfield University Business Plan Competition. In addition, Cooper is a member of the Angel Investor Forum, where he deals with startup and early-stage companies in an array of technologies and consumer products.
From searching the U.S. Patent Office database to compiling accurate inventor and/or company information, Cooper is expected to describe things you can do to protect your invention while saving money and gaining insight.
This presentation is made possible by support from IACT, The Inventors Association of Connecticut, The Dolan School of Business and the School of Engineering at Fairfield University.
