Come out to FatPipe ABQ for a Lunch and Learn!
How to Read a Patent
Patents contain a wealth of information that is often cloaked in spectacularly obtuse text.
- How do we make sense out of it all?
Scientists and business leaders will have multiple concerns.
- Can we patent our similar idea?
- Could we practice our invention?
- Could a competitor enforce its patent?
Each question requires us to read a patent differently. We’ll help you understand what to look for when you read and when it’s time to ask for help from an IP expert.
This is a brown-bag lunch event so bring your own lunch! Soft drinks and water will be provided. This workshop is free – but you do need to register!
