Full Description

Intellectual property is an important subject for everyone involved in oilfield operations, but particularly for engineers. At a broad level, it encompasses four areas – patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets.  Intellectual property can be critical to a company’s success, and also to an individual’s success. This luncheon will cover the basics of the four areas of intellectual property, and provide an opportunity to ask questions of attorneys who are also engineers and understand the oilfield industry.
