so Who am I speaking with hi I'm Randy

Shen I'm patent counsel at Abbott

Laboratories I was approached by Peter

Kellner to give a talk here at code camp

because so so he wanted you know a

little bit of an educational session on

IP basic which is intellectual property

covers patents trademarks copyright so

you know he helps the everyday innovator

out there to be aware some the risks and

pitfalls of what they do okay so you

were just saying you want to stop people

from making the one classic mistake

which was public disclosure you know a

lot of these people are very proud of

their work and they want to go out and

promote them so they can get some

business and that's very understandable

but what happens when you give a public

disclosure is that you destroy your

patent rights both here in the US
