So youve got the next breakthrough invention! With your new idea thats poised to take the market by storm, you dont want anyone beating you to the punch. Nor do you want any tag-along imitators or giant corporations claiming your idea as their own. A patent is a temporary government-issued monopoly that prevents others from making, using, or selling your product. Holding a patent on an invention grants you the authority to issue licenses to others (individuals or companies) who want to make and sell your product. This book is designed to give you a solid fundamental understanding of this involved (and at times, complicated) process. If youre invention is a good one, then youre off to a running start, but 95% of the potential for success hinges on how you go about procuring your patent and finding partners to help you make and sell your product. This book will help you better understand the patenting process by providing step-by-step instructions on the how, when, and where of patenting.
