This webinar will cover the concept of the ‘owner of a patent’ and how if the owner fulfils certain ‘key criteria’, they are entitled to claim ‘small entity status’. 

The webinar will include an overview of the key criteria, the benefits of claiming small entity status and how such entitlement can be lost. It will also cover the risks associated with claiming small entity status, such as fee errors relating to entitlement, and how to mitigate these risks in your day to day work. 

The webinar will also give a brief overview as to other jurisdictions which have a similar concept.
