Haynes and Boone, LLP’s Gary J. Edwards will be a speaker at an IEEE-CNSV talk that will address two areas: (1) how the new America Invents Act (AIA) both helps and hinders independent engineering consultants, and (2) Intellectual Property (IP) protection for engineers.

The AIA, as signed into law in September, is quite controversial. This talk will address this issue by presenting arguments that go both for and against the criticism. An introduction to IP protection for engineers will also be provided. As an independent contractor or as an employee of a company, it is important for engineers to capture and protect the IP that they create.

Attendance is free. No RSVP is needed.
