Before you file your patent application, you need to conduct a prior art search. Learn about the benefits of searching, how to perform a prior art search using keywords and the Cooperative Patent Classification (CPC) system, and how to build a search strategy. You'll also learn to search databases used by patent examiners on the USPTO Universal Public Workstations (UPWS) publicly available at the Rocky Mountain Regional Office and local Patent and Trademark Resource Centers (PTRCs). Space is limited; learn more and register for this free event.
In addition to offering this program in-person, the August 14 session will also be offered virtually via WebEx to those registered for the event.
