CES Workshop Offers Intellectual Property Info

by Diane VanDyke

The Center for Entrepreneurial Studies will host a free workshop, “Copyrights, Trademarks and Patents—Protect Your Intellectual Property,” on Thursday, July 21, from 9:30-11:30 a.m. in Room 194, Parkhouse Hall, Central Campus.

As part of the CES’s Legal Matters Workshop series, presenter Clinton Cusick, Esquire, will discuss how to protect one of the most valuable assets of a company—its intellectual property—through the use of copyrights, trademarks and patents.

The hour-long presentation will be followed by a one-hour question and answer session about the business risks associated with intellectual property. Attorney Richard Kelly of RC Kelly Law Associates LLC, Montgomeryville, will moderate the Q&A session and will focus on practical day-to-day business concerns.

The program includes handout reference materials about current laws and recent case law developments.

Clinton Cusick heads the trademark practice at the firm of Muskin & Cusick LLC, Philadelphia, and divides his time between trademark prosecution at the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office and trademark disputes and litigation before the Trademark and Trial and Appeal Board.

Cusick graduated from Penn State University with a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering and received his Juris Doctor from Rutgers University School of Law. He is licensed to practice in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey.

The Center for Entrepreneurial Studies with a business incubator offers entrepreneurs an array of free support services, including legal, accounting, marketing and technology. Representatives from the Small Business Association and SCORE are available by appointment to answer your business questions.

The workshop is free and open to the public. To register, call 215-461-1140 or email CES@MC3.edu. For more information about the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies or the business incubator, visit www.mc3.edu/ces.
