On Thursday March 28, 2019 Attorney Lori J. Sandman presented a SCORE workshop on intellectual property to an interested audience at Daytona State College. In her talk “Intellectual Property & Business Law Basics 2019: How to Protect Your Business”, she discussed the different forms of intellectual property used to protect valuable ideas in the US and globally, and the impact they have on businesses competing for innovation. Professor Sandman described the need for managing innovation and investing in it. The presentation explained why any company wishing to survive in today’s economy needs to manage innovation better than its competitors, and how they can do it. Ms. Sandman will be returning to Daytona State University and SCORE to share her experiences with SCORE mentors in May.
