SCOREBergen Presents: Patent, Trademark, And Copyright Primer For Start-Ups
By Mel Fabrikant Monday, July 15, 2013, 11:11 AM EDT
On Monday July 29, SCOREBergen will host present a workshop for start-ups that will explain how a patent, trademark, or copyright might be able to protect their company's unique software, business methods or mechanical/electronic design from being "stolen" by competitors. This workshop will help business owners understand their options and what's involved in submitting an application to the Patent Office and their review process.
Topics covered in this workshop include:
- What can be patented, trademarked, or copyrighted
- Reasons why a business owner should apply for a patent, trademark, and/or copyright for a unique invention or intellectual property
- Hands-on patent application draft exercises for a software/business method and a mechanical design
