Specialty Technical Publishers (STP), one of North America's premier publishers of comprehensive guides that help organizations maintain compliance and mitigate risk, has updated its Audit, Compliance and Risk Blog with an in-depth post by top patent law attorney and STP author Brett Trout, JD.
"Too often inventors come up with what they think is a great idea and want to immediately start the patent application process," said Trout. "That's not always a smart move, especially if the inventor isn't the entrepreneurial 'born promoter' personality type or already a business owner." Added Trout, "My blog points out some of the pitfalls and challenges for inventors and patent owners to consider – and questions to ask – before rushing headlong into the patent application process. And at the same time I pose questions, I touch on the three most common ways people can profit from their patents."
