For businesses and organizations alike, protecting ideas and intellectual property are crucial–especially for small-to-medium-sized enterprises and institutions. In order to assist and empower those who need such help the most, Indiana University’s Maurer School of Law established the Intellectual Property Clinic to offer free, pro bono services for entrepreneurs, while allowing IU law students to gain practical and realistic experience and learning by consulting the Clinic’s clients.
In this interview, IU Clinical Associate Professor at Maurer School of Law and Director of the Clinic Norman Hedges speaks about the important work the Intellectual Property Clinic is doing, and how imperative it is for businesses to properly protect their ideas, innovations, and works for sustainable growth and success.
