Counter All inventors require a basic understanding of the patenting system if they are to develop successful applications to protect their inventions. Patent Strategies, Second Edition, introduces researchers to patent applications and patent portfolios. With minimum use of ''legal jargon', it provides the technical professional with the help and advice they require to understand the legal complexities that they may encounter before and during a patent application. It also discusses the responsibilities of the researcher after patent applications have been filed and the role the researcher can play in the maintenance of a global patent estate. Over the last five years intellectual property has taken centre stage around the world as countries realise the value of having a consistent and enforceable patent business. The increase in patent activity has resulted in a number of new laws being created. To reflect these changes this Second Edition of Patent Strategy has been reorganised and completely update. Additional material includes: an overview of the major changes in patent laws a new chapter on infringement and freedom to operate further concepts on the value of patents new strategy techniques This new advice will enable all researchers to file the best possible patent and maintain a good portfolio. Reviews of the First Edition "...fulfills a most useful purpose, is soundly based and discusses patent strategy sensibly. I should like it to be compulsory reading for all newly-appointed research managers." Research Policy "...should be recommended reading for both researchers and their managers, and those who work with them." Journal of Chemical Technology and Biotechnology
