Educating yourself regarding intellectual property is critical in deciding what you want to claim as property.  Intellectual property terminology is shrouded in legalese, highly technical language, and sometimes utter nonsensical phrases (Floppy filaments to promote sure capture=Koosh® Ball). Educating yourself in the terminology and the differences between intellectual property options will greatly assist you in making the right decisions. Before your visit to the PTRC, it is recommended that you visit these informational web pages and tutorials.  These sites will assist you in asking the right questions in regards to protecting your intellectual property.
