Can you patent your song lyrics? What’s a copyright anyway?

bizbulbFind the answers at the Intellectual Property Informational Workshop taking place
Saturday January 25, Paul Laurence Dunbar Library, Rm 241
1:00p.m. to 3:00p.m.

Learn How you can you protect your logo, creations, invention and ideas in the marketplace. The Wright State University Libraries is again helping beginning inventors, small businesses, creators, and entrepreneurs learn the basics of protecting their ideas through various intellectual property (IP) options. This free on campus informational workshop will be held Saturday, January 25, from 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. in Room 241 of the Paul Laurence Dunbar Library.

The presentation will cover copyrights, patents, trade secrets and trademarks. You will learn what resources and researching tools are available on the internet, IP web sites, and the general requirements for applying for patent, copyright, or trademark protection.

Wright State University Libraries is a U.S. Patent and Trademark Resource Center receiving support and training from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

Seating for the free workshop is limited. Register online or contact Ran Raider, government and legal information coordinator for the University Libraries, at ran.raider@wright.edu or by calling (937) 775-3521.
