Protecting Innovation: The Corporate Innovator’s Guide to Patents
Inventors are some of our favorite people. We have had the opportunity to work with inventors working for some of the U.S.’s largest companies, inventors at start-up companies, university inventors, and independent inventors. Previously, John had written a small book whose primary focus was to assist independent inventors. That book is titled Dare To Invent: An Inventor’s Guide to Inventing, Protecting, and Monetizing Inventions. Feedback from that experience helped us realize there is a need for basic patent information in the context of corporate inventors and others who are involved in the invention process as a part of their employment. The purpose of this book is to help fill that need by increasing knowledge about the patent process and issues the corporate inventor may face throughout their career. After reading this book you will have a better understanding of how to read a patent, how to fulfill your obligations as a corporate inventor including how to complete invention disclosures, dealing with issues such as freedom-to-operate, approaches for handling infringement allegations, filing in countries outside of the U.S., and how patents are valued. Although relevant laws are discussed, it is not a legalistic review of applicable laws but instead an attempt to provide practical guidance and answer general questions routinely posed by corporate inventors.
