Did you know that Michigan Tech hosts a regional Patent and Trademark Research Center (PTRC) which is part of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s nationwide program, and that we have intellectual property experts right here on Tech’s campus? If you have questions about intellectual property (IP), join us for a talk titled “Protect Your Innovation.”
Michigan Tech IP expert, licensed patent agent (LPA) and Associate Vice President for Research Administration Jim Baker and PTRC expert and Librarian Annelise Doll together will provide us with compelling IP scenarios and discuss the fundamentals of IP, including patents, trademarks, licensing and trade secrets.
What practical considerations are involved in protecting your idea and how might IP protections be used as a tool to develop your innovation? Included will be a discussion on how to initiate a prior art discovery with freely available resources at Michigan Tech’s PTRC.
This event is open to the public. Register in advance by Nov. 4. We will meet Nov. 7 from 4-6 p.m. in Library 244.
