Top Customer Reviews
I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who works in the field of IP or in an innovation-centered discipline. It's a great resource - chock full of pragmatic guidelines and insights - for folks of all experience and knowledge levels.
In addition, Patents Demystified will be of great value to business persons including CEOs and entrepreneurs, leaders of emerging start-ups, those interested in developing an IP portfolio, and those interested in patenting an invention in preparation for sale.
The author guides his reader through complex subject matter in way that is logical and easy to understand, with several insightful examples to illustrate key points along the way.
For example: I had not imagined that an invention could be the subject of multiple claims and multiple patents according to its parts, and the sum of its parts (tractor example with diagram). And I would not have thought that a disclosure which was made in a semi-private setting which may never have been accessed constituted as prior art against an inventor (in reference to a graduate students’ invention which was disclosed in an essay, but without evidence of access).
Patenting an invention often requires multidimensional considerations, as I’ve learned, and the author introduces these subtleties, building on key concepts.
Given the subject matter, the book is surprisingly easy to read and at the conclusion of each reading session you may be left with a desire to read-on and start the next chapter, as was I.
