    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.

    The participants will learn these Key Learnings:

    • Key Learning #1: Things to do to help keep your invention patentable
    • Key Learning #2: Things to not do that might make your invention un-patentable
    • Key Learning #3Learn an overview of what tools are available to protect your IP and specifically learn about the patenting process  Learn about the patenting system. Whether patenting is new to you or you already have a large portfolio to your name, you will learn more about inventions and protecting them.
