‘The Path to a Patent’ at the WSL



The Wyoming State Library is hosting a free series on intellectual property, “The Path to a Patent,” from the Rocky Mountain U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. These three interactive sessions during April and May will be broadcast to the State Library at 2800 Central Ave. in Cheyenne. The Path to a Patent will be useful for small business owners, entrepreneurs, inventors — anyone interested in patents and other intellectual property.

The series will cover not just the basics, but also delve deeper into intellectual property topics. Each session can stand alone so participants may sign up for the full series or only the ones that match their interests. All will be held in the State Library’s meeting room.

Pre-registration is requested, but not required.
