Centennial IP Tool Kit from Brinks Gilson Lione is available for entrepreneurs and start-ups

Brinks Gilson & Lione announces its proprietary IP Tool Kit is now available in a Centennial version for entrepreneurs, start-up companies and those seeking to familiarize themselves with the administration and protection of intellectual property.
The kit, first produced in 2013, has been updated to reflect the most recent changes in IP law and is designed as a resource for dealing with routine intellectual property legal matters. It includes IP agreements and policies and procedures for companies; information on the patent application process; general guidance on copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets; and IP for information technology and social media.

The kit was spearheaded by Steven L. Oberholtzer, managing shareholder of the Ann Arbor office, who has more than 35 years of experience as an IP attorney. In August, he was selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America©2018 in the area of patent law and received geographic recognition as patent law "Lawyer of the Year” for Ann Arbor for the second time.

“The IP Tool Kit is a nuts and bolts look at intellectual property in its many forms, and gives users an understanding of the complexity of intellectual property while also providing resources to consider how to begin basic IP protection practices,” Oberholtzer said. “We are living in a new era of innovation; business enterprises, even in their earliest stages, need to be protective of their ideas and the technology or manufacturing processes that bring them to life. The Brinks IP Tool Kit is a good place to start.”

Oberholtzer also is the principal author and original editor of the Brinks IP Primer, The Basic Principles of Intellectual Property Law, originally published by Brinks in 2006 and recently released in its fourth, Centennial Edition.
