ReliAscent partner, Martensen IP (a Colorado Springs-based IP protection and government contracting law firm), is hosting an event for contractors tomorrow, at the Catalyst Campus for Technology & Innovation, in Colorado Springs. Protecting your IP is critical in the Federal Government Contracting realm (especially for SBIR/STTR contractors and grantees), and we encourage our clients and other Colorado-based defense contractors to attend if you have the chance.
"INNOVATION WITHOUT PROTECTION IS PHILANTHROPY." — Mark Blaxill
If you've heard that protecting IP is important, but you're not sure why, this presentation will help. Because IP security isn't just part of the ballgame, it is the ballgame. And there are certain "musts" that are bare minimums for you to consider and implement.
Local attorney and former Air Force fighter pilot Michael Martensen shares his decades of experience with a concise, insightful talk that will address some IP myths:
- Protecting IP is futile when dealing with the government.
- In the government space arena, IP concerns are a waste of time and money.
- Commercializing IP derived from government contracts is impossible.
- The prime contractor will take my IP and underbid me.
A light breakfast and coffee will be provided to attendees.
