For small businesses currently participating in the federal government’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) or Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs, understanding intellectual property (IP)—including patents, trade secrets, trademarks, and copyrights—is necessary to protect your ideas, products, and product names in today’s knowledge economy.

This webinar has been designed to specifically address the most common IP issues facing small businesses funded by the SBIR and STTR programs, cover all aspects of IP protection and also help you understand your IP data rights under the SBIR/STTR grant or contract.

This module will highlight the examination and appeals process to better assist you in understanding the mechanics of the patent procurement process and end with a brief discussion of commercialization of patents and common obstacles.

Space is limited to 200 people, so early registration is advised. Please note this webinar is open only to small businesses currently engaged in either Phase 1 or Phase 2 of the SBIR/STTR programs.
