Startups often find it difficult to understand patent claim language and to sort out complex inventorship and ownership issues on their patents. In this seminar, we will discuss how patent claims work as well as the law regarding inventorship and ownership.

By the end of this session you’ll be able to:

  • Read a patent claim and understand its scope.
  • Identify the factors that determine whether someone qualifies as a co-inventor or co-owner on a patent.
  • Prevent or mitigate potential disputes regarding inventorship or ownership of patents
