Professor Mary LaFrance Quoted in VEGAS INC

Mary LaFrance is the IGT Professor of Intellectual Property Law at the UNLV Boyd School of Law.

On July 8, she was quoted in VEGAS INC magazine's article Protecting bright ideas: How to safeguard your company's intellectual property. "It can be difficult to distinguish whether something is sufficiently new and different to be eligible for a patent. Standards are statutory, but they are a little vague, and every analysis is very fact intensive. So it often winds up in court," she said.

Professor LaFrance’s teaching and research interests include domestic and international intellectual property law, as well as the taxation of intellectual property.
