This section is designed to provide inventors with necessary tools and information and keep them up-to-date with regard to the latest developments in the Intellectual Property field.

An inventor can use a sample of a non-disclosure agreement (NDA), which is critical for the inventor or any other party who needs to protect confidential information.

An overview of intellectual property is introduced by discussing the ways of protecting a software program as an example.

In a patent 101 section, the inventor can find useful information in regard to prior art dates, filing provisional vs. non-provisional patent application, as well as general information about patent rights, processes, and fees.
