Protecting Business Innovations via Patent

Watch Course Overview: https://youtu.be/mUja4iwbrTE

This course assumes no prior knowledge in law, business or engineering. However, students with backgrounds in all three areas will find useful concepts or ideas in the course on how to protect business innovations using patents. The approach taken in this course is practical and commercial rather than theoretical. A combination of lectures and case studies help to illustrate the concepts and make the course more interesting.

After completing this course, students should be able to understand how patents are issued and protect innovations, including: What is a patent? What do they protect? How do we get a patent? Where are patents valid? How much do they cost?

In addition to basic concepts the course also deals with advanced topics such as: software patents, business process patents, patenting life, patent trolls and multiple case examples of large and small companies using patents and patent lawsuits.

We also expect you to have fun in this course. So go forth and enjoy!

My journey through out the course was enjoyable. I did learn many things and was surprised to know them. There were many facts that are interesting and very well taught in a simple language which makes it more easy to understand. Over all a good course to learn about patents.

by Irena completed this course, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
I am a beginner at thr subject, so it was really important to me to find a well explained course. And this one is just what i wanted. I loved the lecturer - the way he talked the vibe he gave, and for non english natives - his accent is very understandable.

So thank you very much for the course!
