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

You have an invention and you want your idea be protected. Before filing a patent application, you would want to find out if the same idea has been published. A good patent search will help you identify prior art references that are critical to the patentability of your invention. Whether you are an inventor/entrepreneur or someone who just has an interest in patents, we designed this class to help you understand patent documents and navigate through multiple free online patent databases effectively.

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

Prerequisites: Preview the 7-Step patent search strategy video by the USPTO before coming to class

  Intellectual Property Seminar Series: Trademark for Business

As a part of the Intellectual Property Seminar Series, sponsored by the Georgia Tech's Patent and Trademark Resource Center, Georgia Tech Library, this session is focusing on trademarks. Any inventors, entrepreneurs, students, faculty, researchers and IP professionals who have interests in the topic are welcome to register and join the discussion.

Trademark for Business Program Overview:

This session is led by Mr. Craig Morris, Managing Attorney for Trademark Educational Outreach. He will discuss the following topics:

  • How trademarks, copyrights, patents, domain names, and business name registrations all differ.
  • Why it is important for any new business to select a trademark that will be both federally registrable and legally protectable, highlighting factors critical when choosing a mark.
  • The importance of doing a complete search and whether an attorney should be used.
  • What if another trademark owner believes it has stronger rights in a mark and issues a "cease-and-desist" letter?
  • Information on applying to seek federal registration and how to avoid "scams" perpetrated by companies that request fees for services not required by the USPTO.
  • What happens after registration?

Schedule:

1:00 p.m. - Registration and networking

1:30 p.m. - Program starts

3:00 p.m. - Program ends
