Overview (Program Summary)

Shutdown orders due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic have created economic disruption, causing companies to scale back on intellectual property (IP) expense.  This webinar covers suggestions for protecting IP on a reduced budget.  The strategies presented will provide attendees with a competitive edge over competitors who are sitting on the IP sidelines during the pandemic. 

Some of the topics covered include:

  • why getting in line early and maintaining a place in line at the Patent Office is crucial to protect your patentable inventions;
  • how to reserve and maintain your place in line at the Patent Office while reducing and/or deferring certain examination-related expenses;
  • how to use existing patent prosecution techniques to achieve these goals without relying on potentially risky newly-available COVID-19 options from the Patent Office;
  • how to use certain techniques related to claim drafting, patent family and portfolio filing strategies, and international patent practice to reduce costs; and
  • using non-patent approaches to protecting certain IP.
