Busy end of the summer, not so much blog posting, but still busy! And, I am happy to announce that Bike IP will be attending Interbike in Las Vegas on September 16-18.

Oh, and did somebody say #crossiscoming? Looking forward to CrossVegas! UCI CX World Cup #1!

Bike IP @ NAHBS 2015

We are excited to be presenting at the 2015 North American Handmade Bicycle Show! NAHBS is March 6-8, 2015, at the Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville, KY.

Nathan Cristler will be presenting “Intellectual Property and the Handmade Bike” on Sunday, March 8, 2015, at 1pm.

After working so hard to distinguish yourself in the market, how do you protect what you’ve built? This presentation will provide an easy-to-understand discussion of intellectual property and its relationship with the bicycle industry and small business. Topics will include descriptions of (and the differences between) utility and design patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets as well as costs and benefits of each.
