The Path to a Patent, Part V: Understanding the role of claims in a patent application

Are you an inventor considering prosecuting a patent application? Join us for Part V of our Path to a Patent series. 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. This virtual event is free and open to the public, so register early.

To get the most out of this workshop, you should have an intermediate knowledge of the intellectual property 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.

For more information, please email, call 408-918-9900, or visit the USPTO's Silicon Valley Regional Office online.
