  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.
