After evaluation, protecting your intellectual property could involve several steps. The protection strategy might include filing a patent application in the United States or internationally, registering trademarks or copyrights, or formulating a plan to keep trade secrets from entering the public domain.
Unlike many universities, Utah State’s Technology Transfer Services staff have access to two in-house intellectual property attorneys and a paralegal. Protecting new intellectual property within USU, without outside law firms and directly with Utah State creators streamlines the protection process. The Technology Transfer Services office protects both USU’s and inventors’ interests with the most appropriate agreements for your property.
Intellectual property can be patented and/or commercialized.
