What is your IP IQ?

The U.S. Department of Commerce’s Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have a web-based IP Awareness Assessment Tool.  The tool asks 62 questions designed to test your knowledge of intellectual property (IP).

The tool is available on USPTO’s website at http://www.uspto.gov/inventors/assessment/.

If you are a manufacturer, small business, entrepreneur or independent inventor, you should spend a few minutes to find out what you don’t know.  Unlike the classic, what you don’t know, WILL hurt you.

The tool can also help you understand how to protect you ideas and what options are generally available to you.

The tool enables users to measure and increase their awareness of IP issues, relevant to their creative projects and business goals. Users answer a comprehensive set of questions regarding IP, after which the tool provides a set of training resources tailored to specifically identified needs.
