On Monday, March 17, 5 – 6 p.m.,  at the  Wilkinson Public LIbrary, Tomita offers a workshop on intellectual property (IP), drawing from his 17 years in the field to lead a 45-minute discussion on how to protect your business idea and/or invention. He will address key questions such as: What is an invention? What constitutes disclosure? What are the types of patents and other intellectual properties? Is your invention patentable? Are there any barriers to patentability? What are the steps that you should expect and consider when pursuing intellectual property protection? It will be a tremendously valuable evening for individuals representing any sort of innovative start-up or growth business.

The talk is a TellurideXchange event, part of TVA’s community outreach.

On March 21, 8:30 – 9:45 a.m., at the Ah Haa School for the Arts, Tomita leads an ED breakfast talk on the subject of Branding & Intellectual Property (copywrights and trademarks).
