DON'T File a Patent! Expanded 2nd Edition is the first and only book that shows you why NOT to file a utility patent application on your invention. You will learn that the US Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) wants your money, not your invention. You will see the obstacles the USPTO uses to discourage inventors with their repeated Office Action rejections. To continue the process, inventors have to re-submit their patent applications and pay thousands in additional legal fees. Frequently, the inventor is forced to abandon his application, out of frustration or by running out of money. Many inventors file for a patent thinking they are buying "protection" against copycats. However, patents do not prevent copycats. There is no "Patent 911" to call, nor does the Patent Office send out the "Patent Police" to arrest the copycat. A Utility Patent is really just an expensive and worthless piece of paper that only gives the inventor the right to sue. Patent infringement lawsuits cost millions of dollars, which few inventors can afford. DON'T File a Patent! is two great books in one. PART 1 describes 10 reasons why not to file a patent on an invention. PART 2 describes many useful tips and strategies to encourage inventors to manufacture and sell their products themselves. This book is positioned for the small business or inventor who may not have a lot of money, yet wants to protect his invention and be a success. It can also be used by patent attorneys as a helpful tool to better communicate with their clients. Chapters include: Chapter 1: DON'T File a Patent! The Patent Office wants your money, not your invention; Chapter 6: How to manufacture your product yourself; Chapter 8: YOUGOTTAWANNA! Chapter 11: Attorneys are like Pac Man; Chapter 16: Protect your invention without a patent; Chapter 19: 12 ways to market your product for under $1,000;
