Project Description

The class project is preparing and filing a full patent application from start to finish. I'll take you through patent searching and determining the inventive concept to preparing a background for the application, creating a written description from your technical drawings, drafting patent claims, and filing the patent application with the USPTO. No patent attorney necessary!
