As individuals and companies realise the importance of theirinventions, issues surrounding patent laws and practices are takingcentre stage around the world.This updated edition of the best selling book has been expanded tokeep pace with modern day movements and addresses the global issuesurrounding intellectual property. Including new information onareas such as software and biotechnology it shows the techniquesthat can be used by individuals and academic inventors to protecttheir work and is the ideal reference source.* Bridges the gap between the legal system and scientific researchand avoids legal jargon* Details the reasons behind patents, their importance andrelevance to all researchers and the strategy needed for filing fora patent* Focuses on the strategy and reasons rather than just being atextbook of patent law* Adopts a readable style that explains the basics right up todeveloping a strategy* Essential reading for all those who wish to keep pace and protecttheir workReviews of the First Edition"...fulfills a most useful purpose, is soundly based and discussespatent strategy sensibly. I should like it to be compulsory readingfor all newly-appointed research managers." S. M Scott - ResearchPolicy"...should be recommended reading for both researchers and theirmanagers, and those who work with them." Michael Blackman - Journalof Chemical Technology and Biotechnology

There are too many books about patents these days that are written by consultants (including lawyers-turned-consultants). Most of them are fluff that try to promote some new buzzword, like "intellectual capital management." There's nothing wrong with having a broad and managerial view about intellectual property, but unfortunately most such books are filled with useless consultant-style diagrams and vague notions such as that intellectual asset managers' duties include "sharing best practices", "leadership", and of course "career development for IAMs."

In sharp contrast, this is one of the few books to get into the nuts and bolts of what best patent practices actually are. It's also considerably cheaper than books available from the major legal publishers.

The explanation is clear, and addressed to non-lawyers. A major benefit is that it has a very global view, discussing patent regimes of several major countries, not just the US. In my experience, most tech companies are very naive about such matters. The author also has a lot of practical experience and insight into the personality types of engineers, patent agents and others involved in the patent process. One thing I'd like to see in a 3rd edition would be more concrete illustration of patent "fences", "walls", etc. perhaps by showing some illustrative patents and claims.

As a patent and business attorney who's practiced both at law firms and in-house in Silicon Valley, I found this to be a very refreshing book. I'm considering ordering some copies for clients.

Good general overview, but a lot of "fluff" that can be found elsewhere. The Strategy part seems to fall a bit short ...

How do I navigate with page numbers, or is there only locations? I am going crazy trying to navigate through the book while my teacher is talking page numbers.

As an engineer who has applied for a few patents (only one issued) I looked forward to reading this book with the hope that I would learn more about patents and patent strategy.

The most informative portions of the book give a brief history of the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT), the Paris Convention, and the European Patent Convention. These are all areas that I had not previously understood the history and organization of.

The author gives a good overview of intellectual property, although clearly it is not a legal history text. The intended audience is "inventors." While the authors advice to seek counsel is not only helpful and worth repeating, it probably did not need to be repeated as often as it was.

Although the author goes out of the way to try to include various types of inventors (and even tries categorizing them), it is quite clear from the examples and the author's explanation of the inventive process, that both the author's experience and intended readers are scientists (and researchers). For example, the repeated references to the scientific process and research -- while clearly applicable to science (physical sciences and applied sciences) has little to do with engineering or (excluding applied sciences like some types of manufacturing engineering).

The author insists that even engineers use the scientific method. I disagree and I don't think that the authors advice on how to conduct research or develop intellectual property is applicable to most aspects of electrical,telecom, or computer engineering or computer science.

While there may be analogies and parallels -- for example the so called "dynamic range" (such temperature in a manufacturing process in chemical manufacturing) which may be equated to for example a medium (air, water, copper, glass, etc.) in telecom, the explanations of the process are a stretch and do not provide a workable model for engineers to better contribute to IPR development.

In the latter portions of the book, the author focuses on the principal issue of corporate (portfolio) strategy. Putting aside the research advice (again), the remainder of the strategy/process recommendations are distinctly different from the typical advice on the technical aspects of patents, and focus more higher level questions such as whether to patent or keep (trade) secret an invention (or idea). This is the four or five star content of the book.

For engineers or technologists looking to learn more and improve their ability to contribute IPR for their employers, I would recommend chapters 5-9. Chapter 4 is more suitable for scientists or engineers working in applied and physical sciences (involving research).

Chapter 1 is an excellent summary of international IPR history and status, but may not be applicable for all readers.

This 3rd edition continues the introductory thrust of the first two editions, being updated with the significant changes to patent law and electronic filing. Mainly this book is about strategy. Patent strategy is not a simple subject. This is not a casual book to read except by the rare individual that can focus on technical subjects in their down time.

H. Jackson Knight is a chemical engineer. He manages intellectual property for DuPont Protection Technologies, having worked with Kevlar.

Like every author on patents I've read, Knight says: get an attorney. Despite the ease with which individuals can file and manage patents online with the USPTO, strategy dictates that the applicant has to think several steps ahead.

This introductory book is useful for understanding the language of patents and their fundamental legal frameworks. A realistic goal for the reader is to save thousands on attorney fees related to explaining these fundamentals.

In my opinion, the book could be improved by excluding some sections such as the characteristics of inventors and inclusion of sections covering the post application processes.
