In reference to the patent: US20110209929


Patents can be cited freely in educational activities.


Wikipedia has a page on this: Copyright on the content of patents and in the context of patent prosecution

But depending on where you are in the world / US there may be restrictions on using the inventors name e.g. California Right of Publicity Law

  • The cited link to the California Right of Publicity Law suggests that law wouldn't apply to the use of inventor's names at a conference since it isn't commercial purpose and advertising. – Eric Shain Feb 18 '17 at 15:56
