Patent owners are constantly asking, "How do I know if my patent's any good?" "How do I write an application that will produce a good patent?" "Is my patent portfolio worth anything?" The author, a U.S. registered patent attorney specializing in the technical areas known as Information & Communication Technologies, has been asked this question dozens of times. He wrote this book specifically to answer the question, "What is a high-quality patent?" True Patent Value is the first of three books that make up "The Patent Quality Series". The book includes three main sections: * First, a review of basic patent concepts, and of techniques used by professional evaluators to review and rate patent quality. * Second, twenty case studies of more than fifty patents - specific patent claims are shown to be good or bad, resulting in patent sales for millions of dollars, court decisions for hundreds of millions of dollars, or in some cases, complete loss. This section also includes an analysis of the patent portfolios of three high-tech companies, reviewed by quality, by geographic balance, and by balance over time. Each case study or portfolio analysis concludes with a short and pointed list of "Lessons Learned". * Third, a summary in an easy-to-understand Question & Answer format organized by main topic, followed by a Glossary of more than eighty terms used in patent analysis.This book is intended for four groups of readers: (1) patent attorneys and agents looking for a concentration of live cases where specific drafting created (or failed to create) valuable patents; (2) entrepreneurs and engineers who until now had no way of judging how good their patents really are; (3) patent brokers, corporate executives, and corporate Board members, contemplating billion-dollar portfolio sales; and (4) investment advisors, equity analysts, and investment bankers working with high-tech companies who need to understand the value of a patent portfolio.

Specific patents are shown to commit or avoid the most common patent mistakes. Litigation-Proof Patents is the second of three books that make up ?The Patent Quality Series?. The book includes four main sections: First, a discussion of the story told by each patent, and a detailed method for writing an excellent patent application. Second, principles of litigation-proof patents, including principles for good patent claims, Key Claim Terms, different types of claims, patent value, seminal patents, and writing patent applications. Third, a detailed explanation of the ten most common mistakes in patents, and how to avoid these mistakes. Fourth, case studies of patents, including the frequency hopping electronic communication patent of the Hollywood actress Hedy Lamarr, the patents covering the popular board game Monopoly®, and Apple?s ?slide-to-unlock? patent. This book is intended for anyone who wants to improve patent quality and patent value by avoiding the mistakes most commonly seen in patents. It is intended also for anyone reading or evaluating a patent who wants to know, ?Are there any glaring mistakes that detract from this patent?s quality and value??

PROVISIONAL PATENT APPLICATIONS: Use and Abuse is the completion of a four-book series on the topic of quality in patents and patent portfolios. This book describes a provisional patent application (PPA), shows how it differs from an ordinary non-provisional application (NPA), and explains how it can provide an early priority date for later applications and patents. There are few formal requirements for a PPA, which can be good in that it gives freedom to explain an invention in the inventor's own words, but can also be bad in that the application often fails to explain the invention clearly and comprehensively. Critically important is that the PPA present and define the "key claim terms" (KCTs) that will later be used in the claims of an ordinary patent application and a resulting patent. If a PPA defines these terms and explains the invention well, it is a "good" application. If it does not, then it is a "bad application." The book includes four chapters. - First, a discussion of the provisional application generally, including its advantages and disadvantages relative to a non-provisional application. - Second, four specific cases of very good PPAs, which create a model against which other PPAs may be judged. Each case includes an introduction, a statement of what happened, and a summary in the form of Lessons Learned from that case. - Third, nine cases of bad PPAs, in which all legal protection is lost, or in which the PPA fails to provide an early priority date for later applications and patents. - Fourth, a summary of the major lessons in the book, organized by strategy, quality, and drafting of provisional applications. PROVISIONAL PATENT APPLICATIONS: Use and Abuse is intended to help patent professionals and inventors draft provisional applications clearly and broadly, thereby providing the early priority dates necessary to protect inventions. It is intended also for corporate and IP executives, as well as engineers, who are not actively involved in the drafting process but who want to understand how to make best use of the provisional format.

This book explains defines "excellence" in patent portfolios, explains how to obtain an excellent portfolio, and provides guidelines for the investment required to create an excellent portfolio. PATENT PORTFOLIOS, which is the third of three books that make up "The Patent Quality Series", includes four main sections: First, a definition of "excellent patent portfolio", with an explanation of ten principles related to such a portfolio and a close review of the patent portfolios of four high-tech companies in the areas of Internet firewalls, electronic signatures, cameras, and cellular telephones, respectively. Second, an explanation of how to obtain an excellent patent portfolio. Key concepts of patent portfolios are presented, particularly the concept of Technology Inflection Points. Two critical issues of portfolio management are discussed - (1) Build versus Buy, and (2) Quality versus Quantity. A model is presented by which a company may manage an in-house patenting program. Third, various methods of budgeting for patents are presented, including bottom-up budgeting, top-down budgeting, competitive budgeting, and hybrid budgeting. There is a discussion also of the conflict between targeted results and targeted costs. Fourth, a summary in Question & Answer format reviewing the main concepts of an excellent patent portfolio, managing portfolios, budgeting for patent investment, and special topics such as Technology Inflection Points, patent aggregation, patent pools, and methods of patent evaluation. The book ends with an extensive Glossary of terms related to patent portfolios.This book is intended for anyone who wants to build or manage an excellent patent portfolio. It is intended also for anyone evaluating a patent portfolio with intent to take actions related to all or part of the portfolio - buy, sell, license-in, license-out, develop further, or design around the portfolio.

The emergence of the knowledge-based economy has raised concerns over several areas: the management of intellectual resources, valuation of intellectual capital; commercialisation of inventions; intellectual property valuation; efficiency of the utilisation of intellectual assets; promotion of innovation. Intellectual assets have great potential , yet investment will only flow where there are clear opportunities to build and recover future value. This conference set out to help identify the most important challenges faced by public and private sectors in this area.

As individuals and companies realise the importance of their inventions, issues surrounding patent laws and practices are taking centre stage around the world. This updated edition of the best selling book has been expanded to keep pace with modern day movements and addresses the global issue surrounding intellectual property. Including new information on areas such as software and biotechnology it shows the techniques that can be used by individuals and academic inventors to protect their work and is the ideal reference source. * Bridges the gap between the legal system and scientific research and avoids legal jargon * Details the reasons behind patents, their importance and relevance to all researchers and the strategy needed for filing for a patent * Focuses on the strategy and reasons rather than just being a textbook of patent law * Adopts a readable style that explains the basics right up to developing a strategy * Essential reading for all those who wish to keep pace and protect their work Reviews of the First Edition "...fulfills a most useful purpose, is soundly based and discusses patent strategy sensibly. I should like it to be compulsory reading for all newly-appointed research managers." S. M Scott - Research Policy "...should be recommended reading for both researchers and their managers, and those who work with them."
