According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Global Innovation Policy Center, America’s Intellectual Property (IP):
•Is worth $6.6 trillion, more than the nominal GDP of any other country in the world and
•IP-intensive industries account for over 1/3– or 38.2%– of total U.S. GDP.
Given the extremely valuable nature of IP and patents, how does one go about protecting this valuable property and what does the international practitioner need to know about intellectual property? To help us understand the situation better, we have on the show today, Keith Rawlins.
Keith is a senior attorney at the Klemchuck law firm where he handles all forms of intellectual property with an emphasis in preparing, prosecuting, and managing U.S. and international patent portfolios. He provides legal opinions and analyses for non-infringement and invalidity of patents in the United States and abroad.
