On January 18, 2023, the US Patent & Trademark Office
announced the launch of its new Intellectual
Property (IP) Identifier tool. This tool is designed for those
who are less familiar with IP and assists users in determining
whether they have IP and identifies what IP protections are
available to support their business, invention or brand. The tool
also briefly explains patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade
The IP Identifier tool comprises two modules: The Basic IP
Identifier and the Advanced IP Identifier. The Basic IP Identifier
module consists of six questions that allow users to quickly
identify the type of IP they should protect. The Advanced IP
Identifier module explains the specific types of IP and includes
links to additional resources, including how to file an application
for protection. A third module, Managing Your IP Assets, is
currently under development.
