United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO)

Anybody interested in protecting intellectual property should be familiar with the USPTO web-site. You can do your own preliminary search of prior patents, and there are some excellent links describing the protection process. All faculty researchers working with technologies with commercial potential should be familiar with the USPTO (and make sure you disclose your IP early to the UNCW Office of Innovation and Commercialization).
