Practicing attorney, Counsel to the international law firm of Squire Sanders and Dempsey LLP, and Adjunct Professor at Arizona State University, Michael Lechter has built forts and fought pirates to protect intellectual property turning ideas into assets since the early 1970s. An internationally known expert, he has upon request submitted testimony to Congress and has participated in various United Nations and foreign government proceedings.
Your ideas can be turned into income streams if you manage them correctly and protect them from theft and unauthorized use. The author, an articulate attorney with a good speaking voice, provides an encyclopedic primer on navigating in the world of intellectual property. As in the other volumes in the Rich Dad's Advisors series, the author surveys the history and breadth of this topic before moving into a smoothly organized account of detailed information. Delivered with a speaking style that is as inviting as it is cautionary, the author's message is to pay attention to your intangible creations and do the hard work of protecting them, so you will profit from your work.
