Do you have a new invention, product or service?

Then plan to join us on Wednesday, October 30, 2013 9:30am-noon at the Hardesty Regional Library (8316 E 93rd St)

The first step to developing your idea is to check existing intellectual property – patents, trademarks, copyrights – to see if your invention is already out there. Preliminary searching of U.S. patents, trademarks and copyrights, and exploration of business opportunities is something you can do for free on the Web or with resources from the library.

I have some work that I would like to protect. Where can I find information on patents and copyright?

We have a collection of resources and links that can facilitate your efforts to protect your intellectual property. These resources are in our Business Center Guide. Just click on the tab labelled "Patents, Trademarks & Copyright". You will find definitions of each method to help you determine which applies to your idea, as well as links so you can search for existing items or file a new application.
