Intellectual Property Home Page
We hope this collection of web pages will help you answer yourquestions about your intellectual property rights- in other words, "who owns what's in your head?" The pages youcan access from this home page will cover patents, trademarks,and copyrights. If you're not sure which youneed, our intellectual property overview pagewill help.
You can view some patents our clients haveobtained in a variety of fields, check out some trademarkswe've registered, or look at a few weird andwonderful patents we had nothing to do with. To help you get yourthoughts about your invention down on paper, there's a disclosureform for you to download and use, and we have Patent, Trademark and Copyrightbudget estimators with the procedures and costs of filing patent,trademark and copyright applications.
Our "How do I...?" pages willhelp you with specific instructions for reading a patent or other patentdocument, figuring out if a patent or copyright is still in force,searching trademarks, and so on. You can also find Patent and TrademarkGlossaries and a Patent Application Template from the "HowDo I...?" page.
