I noticed the Oklahoma Inventors Congress is having their Annual Meeting August 12 in Stillwater-- and be sure to RSVP by August 10th, 2006 for a complimentary lunch.
What I thought was interesting though is that the Inventors are holding their meeting at OSU and they don't have any fun activities planned in or with the folks at the Patent and Trademark Library on the OSU campus.
The OSU Library, located at 501 Edmon Low Library receives copies of patents and trademarks issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and maintains a collection of resources necessary for preliminary patent and trademark research.
The services offered by the Patent & Trademark Library are free and our staff is available to answer your patent and trademark related questions.
But I suppose they may just use the following sites without visiting the experts at the library...although it's not recommended.
