Come and hear Jack Turner, Associate Director of the MIT Technology Licensing Office and IP Officer Theresa Latham, discuss the ins and outs of obtaining patents. This popular session covers a bit of patent history and a lot about current practices, processes, and issues surrounding obtaining a patent; the focus is on the process used at MIT for ideas/inventions developed by the MIT community. A portion of the session is devoted to questions and answers. If you think you will ever invent something, you need to be here.
This session is part of the Intellectual Property Lunch and Learn Series cosponsored with the Technology Licensing Office. Food will be served.
