The Michelson Institute for Intellectual Property (IP) promotes education on the importance of robust IP protections and respect for creative work, both of which are essential for innovation to thrive. We are pleased to announce the launch of a new Faculty Portal at, an online gateway where educators and academic instructors can access free learning materials aimed at raising awareness on the value of intellectual property.

Instructors only need to register using the .edu email address provided by their campus to reach the firewall protected Faculty Portal. All submissions are verified and confirmed within 48 hours. After being confirmed, users will receive access to a comprehensive library of IP content.

What’s Available

By accessing the secure Faculty Portal, instructors will discover free books, videos, educational slides, and other first-of-its-kind resources. The materials cover everything from patents to copyrights and even trademarks to trade secrets. Resources are provided by The Michelson Institute for Intellectual Property and its leading network of IP experts. The learning materials have been designed to offer valuable foundational education on IP for a range of fields, including business, marketing, digital media, art, and other subjects where intellectual property comes into play.

“This new offering helps to expand our mission of providing first class content that helps instructors equip students with the necessary tools and resources to protect their inventions and creations,” says Dr. Gary K. Michelson, inventor and founder of the Michelson 20MM Foundation.
