Protecting Technology

Tracy P. Jong, Esq. and Cheng-Ning Jong, PE

Imagine you've invented a great new widget that increases the efficiency of your bicycle manufacturing plant by 25%. Now you're able to undersell the competition and still make a handsome profit. What should you do next? Should you keep the invention a secret within your company? But, how do you ensure that one of your workers doesn't sell your widget idea to a competitor. Maybe you should patent your widget? But, then your competition will find out about your secret weapon. They may be able to copy or imitate your design. Perhaps you should get a patent and license out the technology to your competitors. If they're going to steal it anyway, are you better off selling it to them first?

This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
