Tahoe Silicon Mountain, a network of technology professionals who live and work in the Tahoe-Truckee area, is pleased to welcome Dick Schulze to present: “Fame, Fortune, and Exploitation: The Fascinating History of Patents and Patent Trolls.”
For at least as long as there has been a Patent Office, there have been inventors who seek to exploit their patents to maximum advantage. This talk will examine the fascinating history of how patents have shaped modern technology (and brought fame and fortune to their owners) and how we can apply these lessons to new ventures in the future.
Dick Schulze, with Holland & Hart’s Intellectual Property Group, has wide experience in all aspects of high-tech patenting and was a supervising attorney for 20 years in the corporate legal departments of Hewlett-Packard and its successor Agilent Technologies.
