Have a business idea or invention you’d like to see on the market? Getting a patent is the first step for many inventors, but the process is more complicated than you might think. Wright State University Libraries are your local Patent & Trademark Resource Center, and Ran Raider, Government and Legal Information Coordinator, is your go-to guy for patent research and information.
Ran has given presentations for the Dayton Entrepreneur Center, SCORE Executive Board and the Dayton Daily Metro Libraries Lunch and Learn series, among others. Thanks to Ran’s efforts and University Libraries resources, last year over 800 patrons received assistance with patent, trademark, copyright, or intellectual property research.
Ran recently visited Wright State University Lake Campus to talk about patent and trademark resources, where he was interviewed by a Lima News reporter. Ran wants people to know how complicated, expensive and time-consuming it can be to get a patent… but, he’s here to help!
