About This Class

Have you created an invention and want to protect it with a patent? If you hire a patent attorney, it may cost $10K - $20K without any guarantee of success. If you file your own, you can quickly get protection, but it's a complex process. Not to worry, this course will give you the basics to get a first application on file. Then you can test out your product idea and get investment, knowing you have an application on file. We go through the patent process, encapsulation of the inventive idea, and drafting and filing an application. It's not easy but you can save 1000s by preparing and filing an application yourself. Are you ready for a challenge?
