Upcoming Webinar: Disruptive Technologies & Patent Strategy: Graphene Case Study

Please join Fitch, Even, Tabin & Flannery LLP and IPVision for a complimentary webinar, "Disruptive Technologies and Patents: A Case Study of Graphene," presented by Steven G. Parmelee and Alex Butler.

The webinar will take place on Thursday, April 25, 2013, at 9:00 am PDT / 10:00 am MDT / 11:00 am CDT / 12:00 noon EDT.

A one-atom-thick sheet of carbon atoms arranged in a regular hexagonal pattern, graphene has earned headlines (e.g., "Graphene: Wonder Material of the 21st Century") as frequent and breathless as normally staid scientific reporters ever permit. The 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics, enormous government and private sector investments, and countless articles, research papers, and grants have sparked an avalanche of patent filings. Published U.S. patent filings, for example, increased tenfold over a short five-year window.

This webinar will address the following topics:

  • Patenting behaviors that anticipated room-temperature superconductors

  • A deep dive into the statistics of graphene patenting to date

  • Patenting options available to those currently working in the graphene field

  • What those not (yet) working in the graphene field need to know

CLE credit is pending in California and Illinois and has been approved for Nebraska. Other states may also award CLE credit. There is no fee to attend, but please note registration is required.
