Get Critical Insight into the Modern Patenting Scene

We are now living in the "IP Era of the Information Age" where technology businesses are placing increasing emphasis on intellectual property (IP) as a way to add to their bottom lines. As a consequence, those working in a technology business or organization will inevitably be thrust into working with IP in one or more of its various forms. This increasing emphasis on IP matters requires technology workers to have at least a basic practical understanding of IP, particularly patents, so that they can effectively participate in their organizations’ IP and patenting efforts.

Consider a Spherical Patent: IP and Patenting in Technology Business provides an unconventional and unvarnished examination of patents and the reality of how they are used and abused in technology business. The book starts with an overview of patents and how the patenting universe has become so complex, and warns of the danger of making "spherical," simplifying assumptions about patents and patent-related matters. It then takes a look at the cast of characters in the modern patenting world and the roles they play at the "IP Bazaar." The book goes on to explain the increasing emphasis in today’s modern IP world of leveraging patents in large collections of patents called "portfolios." The author describes how the fractal nature of innovation allows for the exponential growth of patents to densely pack an "IP space," including how this packing can exceed its normal limits and the adverse consequences. He also explores the evolution and importance of core to improvement to commercialization patents. A modern view of patents based on "quantum patent mechanics" explains some of the mysterious patent-related phenomena that are otherwise inexplicable using "classical patent mechanics."

Using examples of actual patents and patent portfolios of real technology businesses, the author discusses how patenting strategies are defined based on "central organizing principles" behind why patents are being pursued. He describes the operational realities of running an internal patenting system as well as how to avoid the prevalent trap of accepting a high degree of disorder (entropy) in the business’s patenting system. He also takes a close look at other problematic areas, such as the use and abuse of provisional patent applications and how "no shame claims" can be issued by the patent office and the havoc they can create.

Review:

"This highly recommended, practical book presents the fields of IP and patenting in a clear and interesting manner. It is an essential guidebook for the novice. ... Do not innovate without first reading this book."
Optics & Photonics News, July 2014

"This comprehensive book about the ins and outs of patents is very well written and puts together many examples."
―Iain A. Neil, ScotOptix

"This book provides specific how-to guidance and is very effective at instilling the importance of patenting in a cost-sensitive and time-sensitive manner to non-attorney inventors and managers. ... The author has given us a practical and memorable guide to the patenting process."
―Keith A. Roberson, Intellectual Property and Technology Counsel, 3D Systems Corporation

"Extremely readable, the book explains both the big picture and the important details. It covers such issues as: provisional and non-provisional patent applications, effective filing dates, non-obviousness, enablement, infringement vs. validity, the different ways to write claims, and who does/does not qualify as an inventor. A must read for scientists, engineers, and inventors who need to protect their innovations."
―Dr. Natale M. Ceglio, Chief Technology Officer, Media Lario Technologies, SRI

"This book is a pleasure to read and provides a very complete course in intellectual property for technology patenting. I wish it had been published earlier, and I recommend it to everyone who seeks to understand how to navigate this process."
―David Markle, Co-Founder, Periodic Structures Inc.
