Intellectual Property 101: Preliminary Business and Intellectual Property Research

USPTO

Do you have a new invention, product or service?

Then plan to join us on Wednesday, October 30, 2013 9:30am-noon at the Hardesty Regional Library (8316 E 93rd St)

The first step to developing your idea is to check existing intellectual property – patents, trademarks, copyrights – to see if your invention is already out there. Preliminary searching of U.S. patents, trademarks and copyrights, and exploration of business opportunities is something you can do for free on the Web or with resources from the library.
