Title: How to Protect Innovations in IT Convergence Design Products
Time/Place: Oct. 6, Friday, 2PM @ E2-1, 1222

Intellectual property rights provide important tools in protecting innovations. IT convergence designs present unique challenges, as IP laws applicable to different areas of technology have to be satisfied simultaneously. This seminar will cover the fundamentals of intellectual property rights and case studies of protecting innovations arising from IT convergence.
A regulatory affairs professional and the holder of more than 30 patents, Tae-Woong Koo brings a
background in science, technology, and regulatory affairs to his intellectual property practice. He
is part of a team that counsels clients on patent, trademark, copyright, and trade secret protection
issues. The group also advises companies on IP matters arising from franchising, advertising, the
Internet and e-commerce, outsourcing, and managed services.
With an undergraduate degree in engineering, as well as an S.M. and Ph.D. from Massachusetts
Institute of Technology, Tae-Woong worked as a senior research scientist, product line manager,
and regulatory affairs manager at Intel Corp. before becoming an attorney. There he published
more than a dozen articles in the fields of optics, nanotechnology, material science, analytical
chemistry, clinical chemistry, and biotechnology. He obtained marketing clearance from medical
device authorities in the United States, Canada, Australia, and EU countries. He also advised the
company on product registration, regulatory compliance, adverse event monitoring and vigilance
