TBIC meeting 2/27/08

Hello Inventors,
Is your idea right for a patent? Do you know how best to protect your invention? Do you need advise? Well this week you can get the answers from our guest speaker at the TBIC meeting. Attorney Mike Colitz will join us to discuss patent law and show you some interesting thing that people have invented. We all have questions about the impact current legislation may have for inventors in the near future. If there is anything you want to ask a patent attorney, write it down and ask mike! Remember, we start at 7pm at 400 Highland Ave. in Largo, Fl. Please join us and help Mike feel welcome!
I'll see you there!
