ITEM#: 14190728A straightforward guide to inventing, patenting, and technology commercialization for scientists and engineers
Although chemists, physicists, biologists, polymer scientists, and engineers in industry are involved in potentially patentable work, they are often under-prepared for this all-important field. This book provides a clear, jargon-free, and comprehensive overview of the patenting process tailored specifically to the needs of scientists and engineers, including:
- Requirements for a patentable invention
- How to invent
- New laws created by President Obama's 2011 America Invents Act
- The process of applying for and obtaining a patent in the U.S. and in foreign countries
- Commercializing inventions and the importance of innovation
Based on lecture notes refined over twenty-five years at The University of Akron, How to Invent and Protect Your Invention contains practical advice, colorful examples, and a wealth of personal experience from the authors.
