Saturday, August 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm • Organized By ST. LOUIS COMMUNITY COLLEGE - INVENT-ED NETWORK
3400 Pershall Rd, FERGUSON, MO 63135


The jargon and legalese of patents can be daunting. But, as an inventor, being able to conduct basic patent research to determine if your idea already exists (e.g., under another name or category) and is patentable is critical. Discover how to better read and understand the contents and key parts of a patent. Gain knowledge about the requirements for and meaning of terms such as ”claims,” “prior art,” ”infringement” and more. Uncover how to improve your research inquiries on free websites and how to use what you learn from other patents to aid in the development of your own. BUSS-765 | 1 session | $25 AGE 60+ | $25 REG
