  • DL301OE - DL-301 Patents (Open)

IMPORTANT: Please note that the DL-301 Patents (Open) course was offered while the DL-301 Advanced Course on Patents was being UPDATED.   

The original content of the course is available to you to read if you enroll, however, there will be no tutorial service, exam or certificate offered in Session 1, 2019.  We expect to launch the updated version of the course in Session 2, 2019 (Sept. - Dec. 2019). 

The course aims to provide participants with an in-depth perspective on the principles and economic impact of patents and the patenting process as a whole. The course incorporates examination of the traditional use of patents by centers of knowledge such as universities and other specialized institutions of higher learning. It also provides students with a comprehensive review of the importance of Patent Pools in facilitating the effective transfer and development of technology.
