Digital Edition. If you have an invention or an idea for an invention and you think it’s worth protecting — then this book is for you. This book’s purpose is threefold: (1) to introduce you to patent law; (2) help you decide if a patent is appropriate for your invention; and (3) get you ready to speak with a patent professional should you decide to pursue a patent. Our hope is that after you’ve read this book, you will be able to effectively communicate why you believe your invention is patentable.
This book was written as a guide that will allow you to have an active role in the patent process. You will know your invention better than any patent professional and, if you also know the process, it will improve the effectiveness of your invention’s protection. Working alongside your attorney or agent will undoubtedly also serve to lessen the number of billable hours required to adequately file an application.
