Patent 101 for Creatives!

Experienced patent attorney Leonard Yip will guide you through the ins and outs of patent law for creative artists. Learn how patents differ from copyrights, trademarks, and other ways to protect your creative art. This workshop will discuss the process of obtaining a patent for your creation, the steps you can take to protect your invention, and how to utilize your patent as a business tool.
