7 Intellectual Property
Engineering Design and Development Lesson 1.1 Overview and Expectations Patent Patent: A grant made by a government that confers upon the creator of an invention the sole right to make, use, and sell that invention for a set period of time. A patent must be Useful Novel Nonobvious Provisional Patent: A less expensive and detailed application that allows one year’s protection to provide time to further investigate or pursue licensing before filing a regular patent application. Useful: The invention should be useful to someone in some context. Novel: The invention should not be known publicly, in existing products, publications, or prior patents, and should not have been revealed to the public more than a year before the patent is filed. Nonobvious: Would not be clearly evident to an individual with “ordinary skill” who faces the same problem as the person filing the patent application.

8 Licensing and Royalties
Licensing: The granting of permission to use intellectual property rights, such as trademarks, patents, or technology, under defined conditions. Royalties: A share of the proceeds or product paid to the owner of a right, as a patent, for permission to use it or operate under it.

9 Intellectual Property
Copyright ©: Exclusive legal right to reproduce, publish, sell, or distribute the matter and form of something (as a literary, musical, or artistic work). Trademark: A symbol, design, word, letter, etc. used by a manufacturer or dealer to distinguish a product or products from those of competitors. The ™ symbol indicates that the trademark has not been federally registered. After federal registration the ® symbol is used. Trade Secret: Something (as a formula) which has economic value to a business because it is not generally known or easily discoverable by observation and for which efforts have been made to maintain secrecy.

10 Business Plans If you wish to start a business based upon an invention or innovation and need investors, you must create a business plan. Business Plan: A presentation that tells about your product, the market for it, and how you plan to use investment money. Many people create and sell their own product in a limited form to prove its worth in the marketplace before entering agreements or asking for investment. You may not need a business plan to sell a limited number of products, but you WILL if you are asking for money or resources.
