Patent Prosecution, Process and Pitfalls
Eventually, every inventor is confronted with the decision to protect his technology by ways of a utility patent. Understanding the magnitude of the undertaking as well as the process and pitfalls involved can greatly reduce costs and (worse) avoid obtaining a useless patent.
In this talk, given by a patent attorney and former USPTO Examiner, the informed inventor will learn to distinguish patents from other forms of intellectual property, how to read a patent disclosure, the patent prosecution process and timeline, decide when and what to file, inner workings of the PTO black box, and how to find and work with a patent attorney.
