Protecting your Intellectual Property
Inventions come at the beginning of the Innovation process, when a new idea is developed and eventually turned into a new product or business. It is important to know how to protect ideas and understand the whole process of patenting. This course will take you through the process, but it will stop short at the utilisation and exploitation of the patent. This course is run by a highly successful Oxford Academic and serial entrepreneur and will include:

Discoveries versus Inventions.
Who the inventors are
Publications versus Patents
The patenting process and timelines
Searching the patent literature and understanding their structure.
Other forms of Intellectual Property
