This webinar will answer the question – how do the results I obtain in the lab turn into patentable intellectual property? Among other patent law fundamentals, IP Attorney Anne-Marie Dinius will answer the following questions:
(1) What is a patent?
(2) How do you get one?
(3) Why should you seek patent protection? (4) What can you do to make sure that you protect your ideas and your rights to seek patent protection?
(5) Who owns the rights to your inventions?
(6) What is in it for you?
After laying this groundwork, Anne-Marie will give some examples of what can go wrong in the process. Finally, she will highlight a couple of case studies from universities showing how the tech transfer process can be the first step in the successful formation of start-up companies.
