Bar Napkin Inventions: How to Apply for Patent Protection

Mark Melasky

Do you have an invention that you’d like to protect, but don’t know where to start? Have you always wanted to learn more about the process? Then join patent attorney Mark Melasky of Intellectual Property Consulting on Wednesday, October 23rd at 5:30 p.m. for a free workshop at LaunchPad as he discusses:

  • What do you need? Patent/Trademark/Copyright?
  • How you obtain a patent.
  • What to expect during the registration process.
  • Patent infringement issues and your duties as a patent owner.
  • Deadlines, fees, and how to get help.
  • Plus your questions!

This workshop is part of The Ella Project’s Bar Napkin Inventions, a casual series preparing the inventor for going through the patent process, and attending this workshop, or doing an online course is a requirement to apply to our Louisiana Invents Patent Pro Bono Program.
