  Copyright Demystified, Part I – What rights do you have, and when might you lose them?
Location: Wilby Room (Ground Floor)

Copyright is the cornerstone of scholarship and creative activities. Creators are rewarded for original works and have a right over them. It is important for any creator to understand the rights they enjoy and learn the pitfalls where those rights do not apply. In this class, you will learn copyright principles and their practical applications from real case scenarios.

  Intellectual Property Seminar Series: Overview of Patent Filing
Location: Wilby Room (Ground Floor)

A patent is an exclusive right to a product or a process that generally provides a new way of doing something, or offers a new technical solution to a problem. Unfortunately, filing a patent can be very expensive. Is there a way to get your invention protected for less money? Please join Mr. Grant Corboy, a patent attorney from the USPTO for a talk on how to obtain free legal assistance through a special program designed to help under-resourced inventors and small business.

Mr. Corboy will cover these topics:

  • How to apply to the USPTO’s Patent Pro Bono Program for help in preparing, filing and prosecuting your patent application
  • How to prepare a thorough provisional patent application
  • How to file an application efficiently

This seminar is a part of the Intellectural Property Seminar Series sponsored by Georgia Tech PTRC, Georgia Tech Library.

Light refreshment will be included.
