UC Irvine Extension is offering a two-day course designed for inventors, high-tech project managers, developers, engineers and entrepreneurs entitled "Intellectual Property Law for the High-Tech Industry." The course will be held April 28 and 29 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the UCI Learning Center in Orange, Calif.

The course will cover common intellectual property (IP) issues faced by high-technology professionals as they compile an IP portfolio. Topics will include identifying different types of IP, identifying intellectual property eligible for protection, minimizing the risk of infringing on a competitor's patent, maximizing patent value through licensing and enforcement, and review of how a patent application is prepared. There are no prerequisites for the course and materials will be provided at the first class meeting. Case studies and guest speakers augment the course lectures.

The course instructor, Sabing H. Lee, J.D., a partner at Knobbe, Martens, Olson & Bear, LLP, specializes in patent protection and other matters of intellectual property . His law practice includes strategic patent procurement, patent portfolio management, as well as licensing and counseling on infringement issues. He represents a wide range of clients in the technology, medical device, building materials and semiconductor industries.

"A lack of understanding of intellectual property law can spell disaster for inventors and company executives," said Lee. "This course will provide relevant and up-to date information every professional needs to know to be successful in the industry."
