In this podcast interview Eric Hanscom from Inter Continental IP, who not only is a US Patent Attorney, but is also an inventor himself offers his advice on how inventors should protect their intellectual property. This includes information about the importance of doing a patent search, the difference a design patent and a utility patent and how an independent inventor can use a provisional patent to keep their costs down while finding out if there is a market for their invention.
I also asked Eric about the recent changes to the US patent system and what it means to the independent inventor.
