As an Adjunct Professor I taught a survey business law course on the United States Intellectual Property System. I found that very few people understand even the basics of our system. What's a patent? What's a copyright? What's a trade secret? What's a trademark? What about the international situation? When I taught my classes my students got lost and overwhelmed by all the complexities and jargon. When I talk to small businessmen, managers, corporate businessmen, corporate executives, authors, inventors, international businessmen, musicians, film makers, educators, entrepreneurs, and even engineers they usually don't have a clue about any of this, yet their future depends on it. Perhaps you are in a foreign country and wish to do business in the United States.
I designed this book for the person who knows absolutely nothing about our system. It's based on my experience in the classroom on how best to present this information to an audience starting from ground zero. I have taken the complex material down from the mountaintop and creatively simplified it into easy to understand bite sized pieces, using easy to follow real world examples to illustrate key points. I deliberately kept this book short; less overwhelming that way.
Are you a student, small businessman, educator, entrepreneur, inventor, international businessman, author, musician, film maker, manager, corporate businessman, corporate executive or even an engineer? Are you in a foreign country and wish to do business here in the United States? You want to learn about our system, yet don't know where to begin? Is what you are currently looking at overwhelming, confusing, and complex? Feeling frustrated? Stop worrying. Creative. Simple. Easy. Classroom tested. Best of all, my book is available in the most popular formats so it works on most devices.

About the Author
He lives in Bloomington, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis. He has always lived in this area, but has traveled everywhere. He plays a mean game of chess and takes on all comers on the ping pong table, and don't even talk about Risk. When the sun is shining and the sky is blue you might find him whipping around town on his bicycle. But when he is at home he tries to mimic Milo the dog and lounge about doing nothing, for both believe that sleep is not a waste of time. He does the Circuit at the health club and in between workouts you can find him downing moose tracks ice cream or a triple chocolate chunk cookie or just maybe some ribs from Mr. McCoy! His favorite fruit is pears and he eats oatmeal like there's no tomorrow for breakfast. If you want to see what he looks like check out his YouTube channel below. Oh, and he has a Masters Degree from the University of St. Thomas. Anything else?
