Small Entity provides information about Intellectual Property Law (IP) aimed at small business owners and independent inventors alike. We also blog about current happenings in IP and business law and hope that our humble words are of interest to attorneys, agents, and other intellectual property professionals.

For small business owners and inventors, Small Entity provides general information about IP issues that affect your business, with a focus on Patent, Trademark, and Copyright issues.

For attorneys and Intellectual Property professionals, Small Entity hopes to provide occasionally insightful commentary on current legal issues that affect your practice.

For those looking to get into the practice of Intellectual Property Law, Small Entity has information on the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s Patent Bar Examination,

The Small Entity website is named in honor of a provision in U.S. patent code that allows individuals, independent inventors, nonprofit organizations, and small businesses to obtain a U.S. patent at a reduced fee. It helps the little guy compete with big boys, and that’s a good thing.
