Patent It Yourself (10th edition)

by David Pressman

Pressman, a patent attorney and inventor, offers a guide to the patent process. He explains what patents and other intellectual property are, each step in the process of obtaining a US patent, how and when to file an application, how to document an invention, and requirements and procedures abroad, and provides reproducible and downloadable forms. He also discusses alternative and supplementary forms of protection, such as trade secrets, copyrights, trademarks, and unfair competition law, as well as how to commercially evaluate, market, and license an invention. This edition includes the latest US Patent and Trademark Office rules and forms and covers electronic filing, combination inventions, and other changes to technical filing rules. It covers recent court cases, termination of the PTO's Document Disclosure Program, the lack of patentability of transitory electronic signals, free patent searching systems, new forms, claiming copyright in a specification or drawing, new rules regarding claims limitations and continuation applications.
