A U.S. Patent Law Primer

Instructor: David L. Applegate

This easily adaptable program covers the basics as well as the more esoteric aspects of the U.S. Patent Law system. Topics covered include what constitutes a patentable invention, how to obtain a patent, and how to protect your patent rights throughout the process. This program utilizes written materials and easily understandable PowerPoint slides to provide real-world examples. It can be formatted to fit timeframes from 30 minutes up to two hours, and can be tailored for presentation to a wide range of sophisticated audiences, from technology and risk managers who need to know only the broad conceptual framework of the U.S. patent system, to general counsel, engineering managers and inventor/employees who seek a greater understanding of the costs and rewards of patenting and protecting inventions and discoveries.
