This course is a must for engineers of all disciplines! It describes patents and the patent application process. It then examines all aspects of a patent assigned to a large U.S. corporation to improve the performance of one of its products. It explains how four other patents examined as “prior art” were used to enhance the credibility of the sought after patent and how the three claims that were made skillfully protect against possible infringement.

This course contains information that every engineer should be aware of. It teaches how to protect innovative ideas, how to apply for patents, and how to use “prior art” and claims in obtaining a patent and protecting it from possible infringement.
