IP Seminar: Should you protect your innovations? Are you free to exploit them!?
Solving a problem in science, technology, engineering and medicine can often be an inventive activity. Would others be faced with the same problem? If so, there may be value in protecting your invention, so you can control who exploits it and benefit from that.
We are going to explore patents, looking at what you can patent and indeed, whether patenting is right for your invention. What does a patent give you? When should you file a patent application? What must you do? What must you not do? And answer all your questions – abstract and specific. This is a conversation.
To bring this to life, we will draw on some of the many patent applications filed by the University of Liverpool, as examples.
So, what have you invented?
