Patent Fundamentals

We interact with patented products daily. Many times, it’s the unique product functionality or services offered that we benefit from. Patents enable inventors to protect their technology and process innovations. Patents are the lifeblood of most technology-driven companies, enabling them to establish a competitive advantage and drive business growth.

In many industries, patents have been used as weapons to battle market supremacy. This has occurred most notably in the high technology, medical devices, chemicals, and pharmaceutical industries.

Patent Fundamentals is a 15-minute course for all employees.
