In this episode…
Generally, when something is very simple, it is debatable whether to protect it with a patent or not. You have to use a good amount of skill to describe & claim it in a way that will be protectable. You have to make the patent office see your idea as significant enough not to be obvious because one of the standards of patentability is that the idea should be something that would escape the average person.
So how can you make that distinction not obvious?
Rich Goldstein is joined by Dr. Jeremy Weisz to talk about standards of patentability, what a broad patent is, and why it’s important to have a patent.
