RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The laws regarding intellectual property – copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets and patents – change regularly and can be confusing, so the Nevada Small Business Development Center (NSBDC) and the University of Nevada, Reno College of Business will offer a free two-hour workshop 1 – 3 p.m., Feb. 27.
The workshop will be held in South Reno at the University of Nevada, Reno Redfield Campus, 18600 Wedge Parkway, in Room 215 of the Nell J. Redfield Building A.
Bonnie Drinkwater, attorney at Drinkwater Law Offices, will cover the basics of trademark, copyright and patent law, as well as discuss the ways each form of intellectual property can be protected.
Darrin Maddox, owner of Eastern Sierra Professional Group, is a CPA and CVA, or “Certified Valuation Analyst,” which is a national certification in the field of business valuation. He will discuss the valuation process in general, what gives a patent value, the elements of obtaining a value of a patent, and the approaches used – the cost approach, market approach and income approach.
