LegalCORPS and the Hennepin County Library are joining forces to help independent inventors overcome one of their hurdles to turning their ideas into commercial enterprises – protecting their ideas with a patent.  They have assembled a team of business and patent law experts to provide essential information on navigating the patent process and answer common questions about protecting inventions.
