IP for Start-Ups: Part I

Protecting your ideas is important, especially as you get your business off the ground.  To kick-off the summer, we're launching our IP for Start-Ups series, with IP attorney Mike Van Loy.  Tune into Global IP Matters every Tuesday at 11:00 AM for a new video in the series, where Mike will address different aspects of patent strategy for start-up companies.

Check out the first video in the series, "The Strategy of Circling Around a Patent with Improvements," where Mike discusses patenting improvements on existing patents.
