Surviving & Thriving 55 Years Patentless: Protecting Intellectual Property the Smart Way.


Bev will share how her company survived more than 55 years without a patent, despite periodic external threats to replicate the family formulas. She'll share "Who we are; why and how we made the decision not to patent; and current challenges facing the company". In an era of Wikileaks and Snowden, protecting intellectual property is one of the greatest challenges facing American entrepreneurs, companies and inventors. Fewer and fewer safeguards exist to maintain any essence of secrecy in today's business climate.

How often have we heard the old saying that education is the one thing no one can take away from you? Why, because education is the cornerstone of our intellectual property. This presentation is focused on taking this premise one step further to protecting our ideas, formulas, and associated trademarks by "keeping them in our heads"
