    Everything you always wanted to know about intellectual property but were afraid to ask

    Presenter:
    Howard J. Greenwald and Peter J. Mikesell

    An "ask the attorney" format will be used in which the issues which are of most concern to the audience will be addressed.  A brief overview of the relevant law will be presented followed by a question and answer period in which questions and answers will hopefully be exchanged between the presenter and the audience ("the Socratic Method").

    Three key learnings  the audience will take away from your program:
    1. How to readily create copyright property of substantial value.
    2. How to readily create patent property of substantial value.
    3. How to leverage the intellectual property rights created to maximum value with clients and prospective clients (in particular, what to say, or not to say, in the initial negotiations).

    Howard J. Greenwald is a Patent Attorney who has been practicing law since 1966 (eventually he'll get it right) and has been practicing law in Rochester, New York as Howard Jay Greenwald, P.C since 1983.  He has obtained more than 400 United States patents for clients, and he has been involved in every aspect of patent preparation, patent prosecution, patent litigation, and patent licensing.  He currently is of counsel to the law firm of Schmeiser, Olsen & Watts, LLP, having come out of retirement in order to again do something worthwhile with his time.

    Peter Mikesell is a registered patent agent at Schmeiser, Olsen & Watts LLP.  Peter graduated from Illinois State University in 1995, earning a Bachelor of Science in chemistry.  He spent several years working in industrial research facilities developing custom polymers before being licensed to practice patent law before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).  He received a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he researched synthetic electrochemistry and natural product synthesis with a particular emphasis on biologically active natural products.

    Open to the public.

    No charge for RPCN members. $10.00 for non-members.

    Get directions to Brighton Town Hall.

    Cyber Security: Critical IT Security Protections Every Business Must Have

    Presenter:
    Kevin Kirby

    Four key learnings  the audience will take away from this program:

    1. The #1 security threat to your business that antivirus, firewalls and other security protocols can’t protect against.
    2. A SHOCKING truth about bank fraud that most businesses don’t know about that could (literally) wipe out your bank account.
    3. Why firewalls and antivirus software aren’t enough anymore.
    4. How mobile phones and cloud applications are seriously jeopardizing your organization’s security and data protection – and what you need to do to protect yourself.

    Here is a short video in which Kevin describes his presentation.
