The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) offers free resources for inventors. These include application assistance; education and training; help appealing or fixing an issue; and other services that support independent patent and trademark filers.

As a patent agency, we have noticed big disparities in inventorship, so we were happy to learn about the USPTO’s effort to ensure equity in innovation through its inclusive innovation initiative. 

Among the USPTO’s free services:

  • Finding a licensed patent practitioner (like Keeley DeAngelo)
  • Customer support by phone
  • Learning modules
  • Events and trainings
