From Invention to Patent- A Peek into the Inner Workings of the U.S. Patent Office

Summary

Once an inventor’s patent application is filed, it disappears into the bowels of the U.S. Patent Office. In some cases, it reappears years later as a patent. In other cases, the application is abandoned and just disappears. This seminar will follow the path of a patent application as it winds its way through the examination process, provide an understanding of how the Patent Office reaches decisions to reject or allow a case, and suggest ways inventors can maximize their chances of getting a patent.
