Valley Forge, Pa., October 2010 – Penn State University hosted a half-day seminar in order to raise awareness and educate its innovators about the importance of protecting intellectual property. Participating from RatnerPrestia were Shareholders Christopher Rothe and Jonathan Spadt, along with Deborah Grove, Ph.D. The IP Seminar, sponsored by the College of Engineering, was designed to present issues related to the traditional conflict between patentability and publication, how to reconcile those tensions, and particularly how to maximize licensing revenues when a comprehensive approach to innovation is achieved. Mr. Spadt participated on an afternoon panel discussion to address questions from the group of over 200 professors, graduate students, and College administration officials.
