Klemchuk LLP Partner Kirby Drake Presents at Smith County Bar Association
Klemchuk LLP, a leading intellectual property (IP) and technology law firm, announces that Kirby Drake, partner, presented at the Smith County Bar Association monthly CLE on Friday, January 8, 2016 in Tyler, Texas. Drake spoke on “Perils and Pitfalls of Do-It-Yourself IP.” The presentation addressed the woes of do-it-yourself IP, particularly focusing on patents and trademarks. She discussed some of the most common mistakes made when online legal solutions or other do-it-yourself options are used to attempt to obtain patent or trademark protection, Drake also provided some tips for getting on the right path either before or after these do-it-yourself options have been utilized.
“It can be risky to bet the future of what can be a business’ vital assets – its patents and trademarks – by using do-it-yourself IP in an attempt to save money in the short run,” Drake said. “It often can end up being more costly than just consulting an attorney in the first place.”
