Patent attorneys from global law firm Dorsey & Whitney will discuss the business impacts of the America Invents Act at a seminar set for 3-5 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1, in the city commission room at Bozeman City Hall, located at 121 N. Rouse Ave. The event is hosted by Montana State University's College of Business and TechRanch.

The American Invents Act represents the most significant change to patent law in nearly 60 years, according to event organizers. Seminar participants will learn how the act impacts intellectual property and will receive tips about how businesses can better position themselves as the provisions of the act are put into effect. Questions about how the act might impact participants' businesses will be encouraged.

Participating patent attorneys include Jennifer Lane of Seattle, Michael Moyer of Seattle and Tim Worrall of Denver.

The event is free, but seating is limited. If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Laura Rhodes at techranch@techranch.org.
