Event description

Description

Unfamiliar with patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets?

Join the Midwest Regional USPTO in Detroit, Michigan as we discuss intellectual property basics and learn about potential ways to protect your invention as you transition from idea to product. This session is for aspiring entrepreneurs, innovators, and students every first Thursday of each month.

  • Overview of intellectual property types: patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets.

  • Why innovators and entrepreneurs should consider protecting their IP?

  • Resources and assistance available through the USPTO.

Following the overview of intellectual property, learn from the Small Business Administration about their resource partners that provide counseling, capital, and contracting resources for small businesses.

Submit your intellectual property questions prior to the event to MidwestRegion@uspto.gov or call 313-446-4800 for more information.

Free parking is available in the parking garage at 600 River Place, adjacent to our building. Guests must state they are visiting the USPTO. View more parking information. The USPTO is a federal facility and visitors are required to show a valid form of government issued ID (driver's license or passport), and may be subject to security screening.
