Patent Basics for Inventors, Engineers, Scientists, Entrepreneurs, and Students

Event has expired. Registration for this event is no longer available.
Geared toward non-attorney inventors, engineers, scientists, entrepreneurs, and students, this program will provide an overview of patents, how they fit into the intellectual property scheme of rights protection, what they are, why they’re valuable, and how to get and exploit them. Among other things, the instructors will describe how to preserve your rights to an invention, including some of the pitfalls to avoid, the process of getting a patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, and how to enhance the value of your patent in using, making, and licensing your invention.
