Startups often ask whether their technology qualifies for patent protection, and if so, when the appropriate time in their R&D cycle to apply for patents would be and how much to disclose in their applications. In this seminar, we will discuss the patentability requirements (including patentable subject matter, novelty, non-obviousness, and sufficiency of disclosure).
By the end of this session you’ll be able to:
- – Identify potential pitfalls that would disqualify an invention from patent protection.
- – Determine a suitable timeframe to apply for patents.
- – Evaluate how much to disclose in a patent application.
