Offense vs. Defense: How Others Can Block Your Ideas With Patents
In our latest Question of the Week, we discussed the benefits of filing for a provisional patent application. In this video, we will help you to understand how others can block your innovation with patents, so you can make the necessary decisions to prepare yourself and your ideas.
Patents give you the right to block others from your idea but that means other can block yours too. The key here is again, timing. The earlier an idea is filed, the broader the topic will be. Patents filed later will be more specific in terms of details. What are the lessons learned here? You need to conduct in depth research on your patent concept before you file in order to check how others approach the topic related to your idea. The earlier you enter into an industry with a patent, the broader your topic will be.
If you want to protect your idea, file for a patent. We at KISSPatent can help you to turn your ideas into profit. Give us a call and we will be happy to answer all of your questions. Submit your own question for our Question of the week series and we'll answer it!
