Join the IEEE Consumer Technologies Society Weekly Meeting Series speaker and IEEE Fellow Ken Sugiyama for an event titled "Patents: Make it stronger and more profitable".
This talk will present an overview of patents from a technical and business point of view. Patents are defined by the law in many countries to protect the rights of the inventor. Patent application documents take a special form which is often difficult to read and write for non-experts. Through explanation of items in the patent application documents, the way to make your patent stronger and profitable in business is presented. A patent lawsuit example and some actual application documents make the talk easier to understand. Although patent attorneys generally undertake the drafting process, the audience learns that serious commitment of the inventor to drafting a patent is essential to strong and profitable patents.
This event will provide the participants with the opportunity to submit questions and comments in real time during the presentation.
