An essential guide to understanding patent and patent searching.
Patents protect how a product works or how it is made. They give you, the inventor, the right to stop competitors from making, using or selling the product without your permission for a limited period.
Our workshop explains the key facts about patents and how you can use the free web databases to research whether this form of protection is available and suitable for your business.
This workshop is ideal for you, if you are an entrepreneur, inventor, innovator or pre-start businesses with an innovation you are looking to protect. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions during the workshop and to try out the databases with help from our information experts.
