What Will I Learn?
  • Learn the ESSENTIAL basics of patent, trademark, copyright, and trade secrets, and other intellectual property subjects.
  • Learn to recognize when you have something that may be your or your business' most valuable asset, and then how to not lose that value (as so many do) by following common myths about protecting IP.
  • Learn the questions you need to ask your attorney before you hire him or her to seek patent protection, to protect your trademarks (brands), or protect your copyrightable works (software, documents, images, etc.).
  • Learn what may be infringement of your IP rights, as well as when you may be infringing someone else's IP rights.

  • There is no prerequisite for this course, other than a need to know how to identify, protect and defend your possibly most valuable assets - patentable inventions, copyright-protectable works, valuable trademarks and trade secrets.

What you think you know about intellectual property law is probably wrong. In fact, most attorneys do not have correct information when it comes to patents, trademarks, copyrights, business secrets, and other areas of Intellectual Property Law ("IP"). If you have valuable technology, a product idea, or own any business, it is vital that you know the basics of IP so that you can know your rights and protect them, and avoid making very costly - but common - errors.

We will cover the essential basics of:

  • Patents
  • Trademarks
  • Copyrights
  • Trade Secrets

In addition, we will provide examples of common (and very costly) mistakes and misunderstandings surrounding IP Law.

For 20 years, intellectual property litigator, Professor David Henry, has taught this course, both at Baylor University, and to fellow lawyers across the nation, and now he is making it available to you at a fraction of the tuition paid by students and lawyers alike.

Intellectual Property Litigator and Professor at Baylor

I am a Registered Patent Attorney, and a patent and trademark litigation attorney. As a natural extension of my IP work, I also advise clients on Export Control issues. I carry on my private practice with Gray, Reed & McGraw, P.C. where I serve as IP Section Chair. I travel on cases and projects throughout the world, as my various client needs, cases and patent and trademark projects dictate. In areas in which I do not practice law, I provide IP consulting for businesses seeking to strategically identify, protect and exploit their intellectual property assets (Texess IP Consultants).

To further keep matters interesting, my principle residence is near Baylor University in Central Texas, from which I fly (as pilot) to tend my cases and client needs. I serve in a number of capacities at Baylor, including (since 1994) that of Professor of Patent and Trademark Law, Faculty Advisor to several undergraduate student organizations, and member of Baylor's Judicial Board. Specialties: Patent, Trademark and Copyright Litigation, Licensing and Prosecution, Export Control
