Dickinson Wright IP Attorneys Quoted in The Scientist About Intellectual Property Rights

September 3, 2014
Attorneys Richard Jordan and Joan Ellis were quoted in a recent article published by The Scientist entitled “Keeping Up with IP”.

The article outlines how an academic scientist can successfully protect IP stemming from his or her research, and leverage it to commercialize his or her ideas – from what to look out for when reading a university contract on day one as a prospective graduate student or employee, to how thinking about IP in the course of basic research can boost one’s career.

“If you really want any technology to be used by the public, that has to be supported financially,” said Richard Jordan. “And so you really do need a sound business plan first, and then a patent strategy that supports your business plan.”

Both Mr. Jordan and Ms. Ellis are Members in Dickinson Wright’s Washington, D.C. office. If you would like to read the complete article, please click here.
