Share Patents 101: Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Patents

Event Details

As the Columbia technology transfer experience demonstrates, patents can provide a successful vehicle for generating research funding for university inventions. Unfortunately, many seemingly harmless events occurring after the conception of an invention can jeopardize the right to file for a patent. Jeffrey M. Sears, PhD, Associate General Counsel for Columbia University, will present a patent law primer focusing on what you need to know to preserve patent protection for your inventions.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER: JEFFREY M. SEARS, PHD

Jeff serves as an Associate General Counsel for Columbia University. He is a member of the Office of the General Counsel’s Patent and Licensing Group, where his practice encompasses all aspects of patent law, including portfolio management, strategic counseling, licensing and post-licensing compliance, litigation, and legislative and regulatory patent matters. Jeff holds an S.B. in physics from MIT, an M.A. and Ph.D. in physics from SUNY Stony Brook, and a J.D. from NYU. He is admitted to practice law in New York and before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
