There are many reasons users may want to search existing patents and trademarks. They may want to search to see if their invention has already been registered. They may want a complete copy of the drawings and specifications of something currently protected under a patent. Researches may want to find historical patents as primary documents. Users may also wish to search in order to find out what type of research is being done by certain companies or individual inventors. Whatever their reasons, these workshops will provide you an opportunity to learn to how to help users find the critical intellectual property they need.
The schedule is as follows:
1:30pm - 3:00pm: Answering Commonly Asked Patent Questions
3:15pm - 4:55pm: 7 Step Strategy for Preliminary Patent Searching Using Espacenet
