  • UCLA short course on "Inventing, Patenting, and Licensing"

    On August 17-19, 1998, UCLA Extension will present the short course,
    "Inventing, Patenting, and Licensing", on the UCLA campus in Los

    The instructor is Patrick MacCarthy, PhD, Consultant on Product
    Development and Inventing; and Professor of Chemistry, Colorado
    School of Mines, Golden.

    This course presents a step-by-step approach to documenting and
    protecting ideas and inventions, and provides information on how to
    obtain a patent and license a product. It explains what can happen
    after the patent issues, and offers the necessary information to make
    better decisions at the early stage of the application process to avoid
    mistakes that may prove costly later. The course addresses the entire
    patenting and licensing process from the initial inventing activity,
    through the patent application, to licensing the product, and beyond.
    The nature of patents, the subtleties of patent claims, patent
    interference, and patent infringement are all explained, and several
    case histories of patenting and licensing activities are presented. The
    information presented should also allow inventors and technology
    managers to work more effectively with an external or in-house patent
    attorney, and to better understand the attorney's role in the process.
    Participants have the opportunity to interact and share experiences in
    an informal setting.

    Inventors, entrepreneurs, researchers in small companies and
    universities, engineers in large corporations, research administrators,
    and corporate executives responsible for intellectual property
    should all benefit from the course.

    The course fee is $1195, which includes course materials. These
    materials are for participants only, and are not for sale.
