NYSL Public Program - U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Resources for Inventors, Innovators, and Entrepreneurs
The USPTO has a wealth of resources for individuals interested in learning more about protecting their intellectual property and who need assistance doing so. Learn about these various resources, many of which are free, and put them to work for you as you begin or continue down your path of innovation. The session will also include a focus on the USPTO’s COVID-19 relief and assistance efforts.
