Intellectual Property Primer for Small to Mid-Sized Companies

By · Monday, October 5th, 2009

Kent and I had a great conversation (Podcast #113) with Cliff Hyra, an intellectual property attorney and founder of Hyra IP, PLC (

Cliff provided us with an Intellectual Property Primer for Small to Mid-Sized Businesses.

Intellectual property (IP) covers such things as patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets.  The management of IP is an important enough consideration for all companies that it should be part of a business’s strategic plan.

Cliff discusses the nature of each type of IP, how and why to protect it, whether or not business owners should take a DIY approach to IP, and common problems that occur for small to medium-sized businesses.

If you’re new to the concept of IP, this conversation is a terrific primer. If you’re already paying attention to IP, Cliff will make you even smarter about it.

It you’re wondering why we’re late in releasing this really informative podcast, mea culpa! I have to take full responsibility for the uncommon tardiness in its release. Sometimes life and work seriously gets in the way of best intentions. My apologies to our listeners and our guest. One thing’s for sure, though. It’s worth the wait!

Be sure to listen and let us know what you think.
