Patent Basics for Inventors, Entrepreneurs, and Startups

Join the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and Peter Thurlow of Jones Day for a discussion about what all inventors, entrepreneurs, small businesses, and start-ups should know about patents and the patent process. 
 
The USPTO will provide an in-depth discussion relating to all aspects of the patenting process, including the types of patents, the parts of a patent application, the examination process, claims analysis with respect to novelty and obviousness, and the office action. 
 
Peter Thurlow, coordinator of Jones Day's global patent prosecution group, will provide insight into the role of the patent attorney.
