Event Details

You have an invention and you want your idea be protected. Before filing a patent application, you would want to find out if the same idea has been published. A good patent search will help you identify prior art references that are critical to the patentability of your invention. Whether you are an inventor/entrepreneur or someone who just has an interest in patents, we designed this class to help you understand patent documents and navigate through multiple free online patent databases effectively.

  • Part One: Introduction (including patentability requirements, identification of patent documents, patent classifications and patent search strategies)
  • Part Two: Hands-on practice (covering classification search using USPTO's PatFT/AppFT, and EPO's Espacenet; Hybrid search using classification and keywords)

Classes are offered on multiple dates. Choose the date that fits your schedule and register online:

  • Tue., Jan. 10, 2017, 1-3 p.m.
