The Path to a Patent, Part I: IP basics

Learn about different types of intellectual property (patents, trademarks and copyrights) and get an overview of the patenting process from invention to application to issue. You will also learn about the requirements for patentability, how to determine whether a provisional or nonprovisional application is right for you, and how to weigh the costs and benefits of hiring a patent attorney. Space is limited, so register early for this free event.

In addition to offering this program in-person, the July 31 session will also be offered virtually via WebEx to those registered for the event.
