As a Patent and Trademark Resource Center (PTRC) Milwaukee Public Library offers monthly drop-in classes explaining the patent search process, the very first step in preparing your patent application. A business librarian will explain the patent search steps and share recent changes in the U.S. patent system, including the move to a First to File (FTF) system and new micro-entity fees, which reduce certain fees by up to 75% to qualified applicants.
Read more about the new fees here.
