Mindy Fleisher, supervisory patent examiner with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, will visit campus Feb. 16-17. She will present an “Introduction to Intellectual Property” from 4-5 p.m. Monday, Feb. 16, in the Missouri-Ozark Room of the Havener Center.

The presentation will review the four types of intellectual property (IP): patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets, and will discuss what each type is used for, how they differ and how they may be used together in marketing. Inventors will learn how to protect their IP from the moment of invention. There will also be a discussion of intellectual property’s role in supporting the U.S. economy. Anyone with an interest in this area is encouraged to attend.

For additional information regarding Fleisher’s visit and presentation, please email Dr. Robert Schwartz, vice provost for academic affairs, at
