IP 101 & Commercialization

This session covers the basics of Intellectual Property (IP) protection with a focus on patents.

You'll learn about the different types of IP protection available and some of the most common pitfalls to avoid.

Learn about the resources available to you at the University of Waterloo, including the Waterloo Commercialization Office (WatCo).

Hear how IP is used to commercialize technology through licensing or start-up creation.

Speaker: Eric Luvisotto

Eric Luvisotto (WatCo) is a registered Canadian Patent Agent (2003) and has earned his Master’s (1998) and Bachelor’s (1995) degrees in Engineering from the University of Waterloo.

Eric has many years of experience in the field of Intellectual Property (IP), having dedicated his career to IP in 1999. His career spans a wide variety of experiences, including working for two Canadian IP law firms, founding and running his own Start-Up company, and working “in-house” for a large automotive parts manufacturer.

In 2008, Eric accepted the position of Technology Transfer Officer with the University of Waterloo’s Waterloo Commercialization Office (WatCo). In this role he analyzes new ideas for patentability and commercial potential; he also seeks out potential receptors of these new technologies and negotiates licensing agreements with them.  He is also involved with the creation of Start-Up companies if the technology merits this pathway.

Eric has been a popular guest lecturer on Intellectual Property, having created several IP presentations for faculty and students at the University of Waterloo including: “IP 101”, “IP Case Study”, “Copyright” and “Trademarks”. He also routinely gives talks to various UW groups (including New Faculty, Post Doc’s, Grad Students, Optometry, etc.) on WatCo’s services, UW’s IP policy and IP in general.

Eric is a member of the Intellectual Property Institute of Canada and is a member of their Bank of Speakers.

He is also a long standing member of the Licensing Executives Society, and past member of the Association of University Technology Managers.
