Intellectual Property Corner
Shuttleworth & Ingersoll will author a series of articles for the IBA directed toward intellectual property (IP) issues that would be of interest to IBA members. The firm is available to answer IP questions from members, either as a part of each article, or perhaps in an occasional separate article devoted only to questions and answers.
A Trademark Primer
One of the greatest benefits of being an IBA member is the opportunity to take advantage of the purchasing agreements available through our BioVantage Program. IBA's Purchasing Consortium includes industry members, educational institutions and state agencies; these agreements allow companies of any size to receive the same competitively-bid pricing benefits.
Highlights of the contracts include:
- Most individual items are discounted by 10-80%
- Direct delivery within 24-48 hours without shipping charges
- Rebate opportunities
- The savings received from just a few orders usually covers the cost of a company's annual membership dues
