Get an introduction primer in US patent law.
This seminar is intended as an introductory primer in US patent law for scientists, engineers, and managers involved in business and technology.
The seminar covers the fundamentals of how to identify and document an invention, search for patents related to the invention, apply for a patent application, and prosecute a patent application. We will also cover the Americas Invents Act of 2011; in particular the change and impact of moving from a first-to-invent system to a first-to-file system, and the new post-grant opposition process being implemented.
Attendees will become familiar with the types of patent applications, patentability requirements, the parts of a patent application, and the prosecution process for getting a patent application allowed before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
