Intellectual property rights is an invaluable asset to a business and the economy of the country at large. Identifying and protecting intellectual property is essential if the creator or owner of the IP wants to commercially exploit it. IP registration is therefore important to determine ownership of IP. This course brings out a detailed analysis of the criteria for patent protection, the procedures involved in the registration of patent and the stages involved therein. It includes:
- Prior art search
- Preparing a checklist of documents required for filing patent application.
- Familiarising with PCT filing
- Familiarising with the timelines at each stage of patent filing
- Types of office actions and responses to office actions
What makes this module interesting is the hands-on experience of prior art search through workshop mode, a detailed examination of patent specification and a detailed understanding of the stages involved in filing patent before the Registry. The objective of this module is to prepare you to be industry ready to take on patent registration.
