Patenting Tips to Effectively Protect Your Invention --

Special Time -- 8:30 - 10:00 a.m.

Special Location -- Spiegel Community Center in Pittsford

Presenter: Dave Bassett

OK. You’ve come up with a great idea that’s going to set the world on fire. How do you protect your idea so you can monetize that idea? Getting a patent could be a great tool. But there are some ‘do’s and don’ts’ that you should know before you try to get a patent. At this talk, you will get the following:

  • An overview of the patent system and a (brief) overview of some other intellectual property protection tools (copyright, trademark, & trade secret) are available;
  • Some ‘do’s’ that are usually necessary to get a patent; AND
  • Some ‘don’ts’ that an inventor needs to avoid to keep from making their own invention un-patentable.
Refreshments will be available.

Location: Five Star Bank at City Gate
