Seminar offers tips on turning patents into profit


Ever seen a product in the store or on TV that you had thought up years ago but never did anything about? Want to know how to apply for a patent? The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at Binghamton University; the firm of Salzman & Levy, attorneys at law; and Inventorprise, Inc. will host a seminar on patents from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, February 12, at the Binghamton Regency on Water Street in downtown Binghamton.

The seminar will offer an overview of the patent process and why patents are so important in today’s marketplace. Discussion will also include the differences and types of patents issued, expected costs and the procedures to follow.

A representative from Salzman & Levy will present information about intellectual property and the differences between patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets. The seminar will also feature a demonstration of PatentEase®, a software package written and owned by Inventorprise, Inc. that allows users to write their own patent and generate claims for their invention using an exclusive feature called One Click Claiming™.

The cost of the seminar is $69 and may be paid in advance or at the door. Attendees will also receive free copies of patent-related materials including the official U.S. Patent Office booklet. 

To register for the seminar or for more information, call the SBDC at 607-777-4024.
