Are you an inventor preparing to file a patent application? In part five of this eight-part recurring series, United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) experts will discuss the parts of the claim, show examples of claim illustrations from issued U.S. patents, and help participants develop a better appreciation of how a patent examiner views a claim.
To get the most out of this workshop, you should have an intermediate knowledge of the intellectual property (IP) system and of patents specifically. We recommend that you complete the previous sessions, Part I: IP basics and Part IV: Learn how to draft your patent application, before attending.
