Filing for a Patent is the next best thing to a one-on-one conference with your attorney. Written by a nationally-known and respected intellectual property attorney, this essential reference speaks to you directly about the main aspects of the patent application process, just as though you were a client meeting with your lawyer. This easy-to-read guide explains the major steps in the process of applying for a patent, including checking the requirements for patentability, conducting a prior art review, preparing the application, and responding to office actions from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Is your invention patentable subject matter? Is it novel and non-obvious? Can you disclose it to someone without fear of losing your rights? What do you do if the USPTO rejects your application? Filing for a Patent can help you answer these questions, as well as direct you in gathering and organizing documents, developing a plan, and protecting your invention, which may be a very valuable personal or corporate asset. Youll be an informed and educated client after reading this guide, and prepared to discuss pursuing a patent with confidence. Youll be prepared to work collaboratively with a lawyer to assist you in the preparation of your patent application and to see it through to issuance.
