Patents and Trademarks: Protecting Your Intellectual Property

This event has been cancelled due to weather conditions in Washington D.C. preventing the speakers from attending the conference.  We anticipate rescheduling the event, check the www.uspto.gov/siliconvalley webpage for the rescheduled date in the near future.

To celebrate the grand opening of the King Library as a Patent and Trademark Resource Center, we are offering a full day conference  covering a variety of basic topics useful to small business owners, entrepreneurs, and independent inventors considering filing a patent application or registering a trademark.  Topics will include an overview of intellectual property protection, and how to conduct a fee preliminary patentability search to see if your invention was previously patented or if your new business name can be registered as a trademark.   Speakers include USPTO representatives from its headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia and King Library librarians.   

Join us Tuesday, Jan. 26 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Dr. Martin Luther King Library, 150 East San Fernando Street, San Jose, CA 95112, Room 225. This event is for those with a basic to intermediate knowledge of intellectual property rights. Register here.
