Patent Protection: Interview with Kirk Teska

I have recently begun an Internet radio interview show, titled “Medical Development Insights,” on the UR BusinessNetwork: http://urbusinessnetwork.com/medical-development-insights/

In this conversation,

http://urbusinessnetwork.com/intellectual-property-patent-law/

along with Jeff Karg, I interviewed Kirk Teska, an attorney with over 20 years of intellectual property law experience, managing partner of the intellectual property law firm Iandiorio & Teska based in Waltham, MA, and professor at Suffolk University Law School in Boston. Jeff is Director, Program Development, for TechEn, where he oversees project engagements by aligning client needs with TechEn’s suite of services and capabilities. He is the primary inventor on 22 patents in areas ranging from inhalers and drug delivery devices to water filtering faucets and blood collection disposables.

In the interview, Kirk examines intellectual property patent protection for medical devices, something he presented at the October 1, 2014 MDG monthly forum on “Intellectual Property Approaches To Safeguard Value.” He covered several key points:

  • Myths the general public – and many entrepreneurs – have about patents
  • What the potential inventor needs to know
  • How to work with patent attorneys

Kirk Teska’s book, “Patent Savvy,” was published in the fall of 2007 by Nolo Press. His second book, “Patent Management,” was published by ASME in 2010.
