The Path to a Patent, Part I: The patent application process

The USPTO Rocky Mountain Regional Office invites you to join us for Part I of its series The Path to a Patent. In this module, we will provide a brief overview of the different types of intellectual property (including trademarks and copyrights) and take an in-depth look at the patenting process from invention to application to issue. We will also cover the requirements for patentability, how to determine whether a provisional or non-provisional application is right for you, and how to weigh the costs and benefits of hiring a patent attorney.
