NMIN's Online Intellectual Property (IP) Management tools
NMIN’s three interactive tools take you step-by-step through the processes of: deciding if you are in a position to pursue a patent for your IP; determining if you have Freedom to Operate (FTO); and filing a patent—three fundamental components of IP management.
THESE TOOLS ARE NOT ACCESSIBLE ON SMALLER SCREENS OR MOST MOBILE DEVICES.
