Patent Protection: A Practical Guide for Inventors

John Rizvi provides a common sense strategy to inventors seeking legal protection for their ideas. Topics covered include distinguishing patent rights from trademark and copyright protection, initial documentation of an idea’s conception, disclosure documents, types of patent applications, prior art searches, provisional patent applications, filing, patent pending status, and the prosecution process. The material is presented in an easy-to-understand format and viewed from the practical standpoint of the inventor.
