Patents 101
Tuesday, August 16, 2022 | 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. ET

Why is it important to understand the anatomy of a patent? How do patents work and what can be done with them? At its most basic, a patent is a form of intellectual property (IP) protection that gives its owner the right to exclude others from making, using, or selling the invention covered by it. Patents are crucial to encouraging innovation because of their societal role as they allow creators to monetize their work. If you are curious about patents, or know someone who is, now is the opportunity to learn the basics of patents and get answers to all your burning questions about patent law by attending “Patents 101.”
