“Avoiding Pitfalls in the Patent Process – Timing, Information, and People”

Presented by

How can we make the patent process as painless as possible? This presentation will focus on issues related to timing (whether and when to file a patent application); information (the closest prior art, data and information helpful for preparation and prosecution of patent applications, and references related to patentability); and people (inventor expectations and cooperation, ownership issues, and collaborations).
