Fitch Even partner Karl R. Fink recently spoke at the 2013 IP Business Summit, a national conference presented by the National Knowledge & Intellectual Property Management Taskforce and the Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina. The conference was held on May 29–31, 2013, at the Wild Dunes Resort in Isle of Palms, S.C.
The purpose of the summit was to teach business professionals from a wide range of industries how best to leverage their intellectual property to generate optimal business results. To that end, conference speakers presented participants with vital information on the creation, assertion, defense, and capitalization of intellectual property. Karl’s presentation focused on “Lifting the Veil of Mystery About IP.”
The mission of the National Knowledge & Intellectual Property Management Taskforce is to provide support to corporations that seek competitive distinction and proficiency in the business aspects of intellectual property, and to facilitate a national economic infrastructure that can support IP-based commerce. Fitch Even has been a participant in the Taskforce since 2001.
