Explore the USPTO Website to Quickly Find Free Inventor Resources

Saturday, October 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm • Organized By Florissant Valley Community College - STLCC


Researching and collecting general data about your invention is daunting enough. You need to know more [e.g., how and when to protect your idea with some form intellectual property rights (IP)]. Learn how to quickly gather inventor information, forms and videos from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) website. Discover how to extract the valuable content, information, videos, and/or forms that you need to gain a better understanding of the different forms of IP. Explore the various forms of IP (e.g., patent, trademark, trade secret and copyright), as well as the costs and filing processes (with or without an attorney).
