US IPR Update Seminar 10 April 2018

US IPR Update Seminar is part of our series of US IPR related events.

The Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH) organizes an update seminar on US IPR System.

The seminar has two parts: design patent session in the morning and patent session in the afternoon. You may participate in either one of the two sessions or both.

Desing Patent Session is a walk-through of application process in the USA with case examples. It suits well also for those who have no prior knowledge of US design patent system.

Patent Session is a more in-depth review of the US patent system for patent professionals, focusing on IoT and communication with the USPTO.

The seminar is free of charge and will be conducted in English.

Speakers' presentations can be found in the programme below.
