Fish & Girl Scouts Collaboration

For the past two years, Fish & Richardson has collaborated with the Girl Scouts to develop a program by which troops are able to earn their Intellectual Property Patch and Inventor's Badge. The aim of this program is to teach young women they can be inventors and educate them on the basic tenets of intellectual property law, specifically copyrights, trademarks, and patents.

At the events, Fish volunteers work with the troops to come up with a new invention, "draft" patent applications, brainstorm trademarks, and learn about copyrights by generating poems or songs about their new invention.

For more information on this program, or to schedule an event, please contact Marketing. For general information about the Intellectual Property Patch, visit the USPTO’s website here.
