  Patent Tuesdays
Location: Library Homer Rice Center (Ground Floor West)

Are you an inventor, an entreprenuer, a student or a researcher who is getting ready to apply for a patent or someone who is curious about patents? Before you talk to a manufacturer or the public about your invention, it is wise to get your idea protected. A good patent search will help you identify prior art references that are critical to the patentability of your invention. In this class, you will learn the patent basics as well as patent search strategies through hands-on exercises. Handouts are included. The class contains two parts:

  • Part One: Introduction to patents (including patentability requirements, identification of patent documents, patent classifications and patent search strategies)
  • Part Two: Patent search hands-on practice (including classification search using USPTO's PatFT/AppFT, and EPO's Espacenet; Hybrid search using classification and keywords)

We are offering this patent class on every 2nd Tue. of the month this summer. Please choose the date that fits your schedule and register it online:

  • Tue., May 8, 2018, 12-2 p.m.

  Trademark Basics: What Every Small Business Should Know Now, Not Later

Location: Georgia Tech Student Center, Piedmont Room

A trademark helps to distinguish a business’s unique products and services from what another business offers. A trademark can be a word, slogan, logo, symbol, design or even a sound. Why should any new business select a trademark that will be both federally registrable and legally protectable? How do you apply for a federal trademark registration?

You are welcome to register and attend this trademark seminar, given by a managing attorney from the USPTO, for a discussion on this interesting topic.

Program Overview

This seminar will address common issues regarding trademarks, such as:

  • How do trademarks, copyrights, patents, domain names, and business name registrations all differ?
  • Why should any new business select a trademark that will be both federally registrable and legally protectable?
  • What are the critical factors when choosing a mark?
  • Why is it important to do a complete trademark search, and should you use an attorney?
  • What should you do if another trademark owner sends a "cease-and-desist" letter?
  • How do you apply to seek federal registration and what is the role of the USPTO?
  • How do you avoid "scams" perpetrated by companies that request fees for services not required by the USPTO?
  • What happens after registration?
