Patent Strategy for Entrepreneurs
Patent protection for inventions is a valuable component of business strategy for startups and established companies alike. This webinar series prepares scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs for dealing with the patent issues they will face as innovators. The series spans a wide variety of topics in patent law, including claims, inventorship, patentability requirements, the patent application process, prosecution, post-grant proceedings, litigation, and licensing. Although the focus will be on US law, some topics are enhanced with the laws of other jurisdictions as well. We discuss what recent developments in patent law mean for inventors, and draw examples ranging from the computer software to the pharmaceutical industries.
