Product Description

Do-It-Yourself Patent Course(tm) is an 11-hour instructional DVD set taught by Andrew Knight, J.D., Registered Patent Agent. Andrew Knight is a graduate of MIT and Georgetown Law, a university instructor, and the inventor of 13 issued U.S. patents and 15 pending patent applications. Do-It-Yourself Patent Course(tm) covers everything you need to know to draft your own patent application, including:

* Drafting a provisional patent application for a quick filing date

* Drafting a complete nonprovisional utility patent application

* Drafting claims - the most important part of a nonprovisional application

* Creating drawings and figures

* Writing a thorough specification that will satisfy the U.S. Patent Office

* Filling out the necessary forms and paperwork

Do-It-Yourself Patent Course(tm) will also cover:

* Aspects of U.S. Patent Law that dictate how you draft a patent application

* What is and what is not patentable

* Specific examples with applications to mechanical devices, electrical devices, software, consumer and industrial products, and business methods

* Mistakes to avoid

* Tips, suggestions, and strategies for creating a valid, enforceable, and valuable patent with broad claims

Do-It-Yourself Patent Course(tm) will teach you, in an easy-to-understand, step-by-step format, how to get your invention patent pending and how to write and submit a nonprovisional patent application on your invention. Unlike a provisional patent application, the Patent Office will read and examine your nonprovisional patent application for patentability. Do-It-Yourself Patent Course(tm) breaks the process down into clear instructions, including drafting claims, drawing figures, writing a comprehensive specification, and filling out the necessary paperwork.

Some companies charge you hundreds of dollars just to file a simple provisional patent application that you can do on your own. Other companies will charge you over $1000 to file a design patent on your invention, but design patents are very weak and often worthless. Finally, a competent Registered Patent Agent or Attorney will charge you between $3,500 and $10,000 to draft and file a nonprovisional utility patent application. Do-It-Yourself Patent Course(tm) will teach you how to do this on your own for a small fraction of these costs.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

If you anticipate having to defend your patent against big-time corporations with expensive lawyers, but you don't have deep pockets to hire the same for yourself, [...] recommends that you go with this helpful book. Even if you pay a professional drafting firm to do your illustrations, they can be dismantled by your competitors and don't stand up to scrutiny like the textual portion of your application. Save a few bucks and go this route, but follow their directions and suggestions closely!
