Hello everybody! We are the Young Intellectual Property Advocates (YIPA) serving as the guardians of intellectual property rights for the students of the Philippine Science High School - Southern Mindanao Campus. We are working with the Innovation Technology and Support Office (ITSO) of our school. We want you to be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor — that is, your literary works and inventions!
How do we do this, you ask? Why? By assisting you in applying for intellectual property protection of course! We’ll guide you through the basics: the importance of intellectual property rights and how to obtain them.
You may find these publication materials useful, designated by a code on their top left:
P1A: Provides information about the steps you should do to apply for a copyright protection or a patent through ITSO-SMC’s help
P1B: Teaches you how to fill in the Google Forms we have created for your copyright and/or patent application submissions.
P2: Informs you about the documents that you will need to submit when applying for copyright, patent, or both.
P3A: Guides you on how to conduct a patent search and how to determine patentable inventions.
P3B: Helps you determine the things you can apply a copyright for.
(Note: If you have already complied with the needed requirements for filing for intellectual property protection, you need not file again.)
