Beware: Poorly drafted provisionals can be useless or even worse, they can be used against you!

According to the USPTO, nearly 170,000 provisional patent applications were filed in FY2019 — that’s about 466 provisional patent application filings each day. Provisional patent applications are often devalued and tossed off as a quick and easy way to protect an invention for a temporary period of time, with minimal effort spent in drafting this application. But this early misstep can result in highly consequential problems during examination of the non-provisional application later.

That’s why Tech Transfer Central’s Distance Learning Division has secured a pair of experts from the Baker Donelson Law Firm in to bring you this critical webinar:

Protect University Innovations by Drafting High Quality Provisional Patent Applications

Join us as we discuss best practices and expert tips for drafting a high-quality provisional patent application. Here’s a quick look at the topics we will cover:

  • Common mistakes and their impact on later filings
  • “Emergency” provisionals – when time is of the essence
  • Application Title and Abstract
  • Specifications
  • Drawings
  • Examples
  • Claims
  • Formalities after filing
