suite to 1:30inventors of all walks you know you name 1:32it from a garage inventor to fortune 500 1:35company we're able to serve very 1:37efficiently and effectively through a 1:39one on one way patent attorney to client 1:43and do that by virtual representation so 1:4795 plus percent of our representation is 1:50through clients over video chat much 1:52like we're doing right now wow that's 1:53kinda nice mail phone call so we're able 1:56to deliver real instead of spending 1:58money on that marble and 1:59brick-and-mortar meeting worth that 2:00right to value for the client really 2:03it's been funnier on the firm we brought 2:06on Irene better part of a year ago she's 2:08an IP licensing specialist you know she 2:11done in California is and wonderful 2:13having her 2:14on the teamwork with uh kind of on the 2:15on the fun side of fattening and quickie 2:18aspects you want to try to help your 2:20clients get a license or sell that's 2:23what she does so we do a lot of work on 2:25the front end getting that the best 2:27assets possible for our clients and one 2:29help them on the business side too 2:30that's great that's great 2:32I mean I know I've worked with you and 2:35Irene and seeing you you guys have been 2:37a pleasure to work with I really just 2:38appreciate that so this was kind of 2:41going to I mean a lot of people a lot of 2:43our listeners might not understand even 2:46though they're inventors 2:47they might not understand the complete 2:49semantics of you know how long is the 2:51patent you know what even out some 2:54impulse might not understand all of the 2:55provisional time you can talk a little 2:57bit about that you know just kind of not 2:59you know just some nuts and bolts all 3:01those kind of things on how long utility 3:03patents the duration this kind of thing 3:04people care absolutely you know and 3:06patent law is one of those things that 3:09it does take some time you kind of sit 3:10down and and get into it if you want to 3:13learn about it you can't just go ill 3:16start googling it's one of those things 3:18you need to make sure you're getting 3:19good quality information especially 3:21because the vendors that spend some 3:23hours and weeks or months or years on 3:25their invention it's going to be worth 3:27you know a few hours of sound and take 3:29in some good quality info 3:31I do recommend go into our website old 3:33IP calm this great information there if 3:36you're going to do one thing I recommend 3:38that you take within our book okay it's 3:40right now for free bold ideas 3:42the adventures guides of patents it's a 3:45hundred major it's a small booklet I you 3:47know it's readable I roll down the forty 3:50or so most common questions I get kind 3:54of deliberate answers here this is just 3:56a great way that someone that's thinking 3:58about it or you haven't that with an 4:00attorney and want some core information 4:02at times that's what I recommend to go 4:05your question about the patent process 4:06and just really simply for us we 4:08encourage a patentability search right 4:11up front you yes of course it seemed 4:13better job I think to do their cursory 4:16diligence on their own but hired a 4:18professional to do a worldwide search 4:19for patent information non patent 4:21literature to make sure that what you 4:23have is new is essential and it's the 4:25backbone of the entire process 4:27so once you get through that nobility 4:29search and we're through that wicked 4:30yeah we think there's enough here to 4:32work moving forward we do our we do our 4:35work on applications and depending on 4:37this fist case or the client will 4:39recommend either a provisional or a non 4:41provisional a real high level of 4:44provisional product protects be the 4:46priority that's really what you're going 4:48after with the provisional you get to 4:50file first and that's what we're in now 4:52in that systems in 2013 with the 4:55American Invents Act being issue signed 4:57by Obama then it is not first-to-invent 5:01so not so important anymore of those 5:04inventor notebooks well they're good to 5:05keep for documenting it's not you're not 5:08going to be able to come in and say 5:09later than AI benefits first it's who 5:11files first so that's what a provisional 5:13does more than anything does it 5:16certainly helps you with not having to 5:18lock in your claims you lock in claims 5:20at the non provisional phase we can talk 5:22about some of those details later right 5:24right 5:25really good that's great that's great 5:26information and uh folks donors even 5:29understand what you just said that they 5:30do now that's great but yeah you're 5:34right you used to be a person first to 5:36admit and nice to encourage students to 5:39use inventors notebooks and those kind 5:41of things you know it's really so 5:42important but again yeah it's 5:44first-to-file now so its first one to 5:46the to get there so it's really 5:49important I love that so this not a 5:52question is something here um this is 5:54something I've always wanted to ask a 5:56patent attorney and you obviously I 5:58really wanted to shoot this one at you 6:00um I think a lot of inventors come in 6:04contact with who I think come in contact 6:06with there's a lot of fear out there a 6:08lot of fear about losing their 6:10intellectual property and happen to 6:12protect how men not disclosing anything 6:15how many times in your career have you 6:18actually had to protect someone's 6:19intellectual property how many times is 6:21it well if you're talking about 6:25infringement situation infringement 6:27since you went to jail 6:28yeah I mean it happens and I would say 6:30about half of every single client case 6:33so I mean I would say 20 and we've had 6:37better fortune to get our 6:40patents issue and granted and move along 6:42well not all of them are actually 6:44businesses ongoing concerns of those 6:48that are I'd say half see in crisp an 6:51issue okay whether they're getting 6:54letters from people that saying hey look 6:56your whatever you're selling on the 6:58market is infringing our claims 7:00now after about creating and just being 7:02in that space or they are proactively 7:05monitoring on their own behalf or we're 7:07doing the monitoring for them and we see 7:09a sec we see a product or service out 7:11there that we think does redundant 7:13claims I'm going to comment and we look 7:16for it which those of the clients that 7:18have hired us to do some of these 7:19brokering services we have infringement 7:22is you may not people do think of it as 7:25sort of oh my gosh how horrible but it's 7:27actually a sign that people are using 7:29and it interested in the technology and 7:31makes it more value so it's part of our 7:34analysis that we would send off to a 7:35broker or you know someone that could 7:38connect us with a licensee or buyer they 7:41want to see so we want to actively look 7:43for that to get us in a better 7:45negotiating positions I think a lot of 7:47the fear to you currently if I'm wrong 7:50is if from matters that I talk to a lot 7:53they're just I mean again I understand 7:55what you're saying about who visit a lot 7:57of businesses are looking there's a lot 7:59of things going on but I think a lot of 8:00dinners independent and the vendors are 8:02still afraid that some big company's 8:04going to steal their skill their idea um 8:07you know not saying it doesn't happen 8:09but do you see that often or you see 8:12that not happening 8:13well so I mean and them in the perfect 8:16world is kind of odd to think about it 8:18this way but that if you actually get a 8:20patent on it very a lot of good with a 8:22good set of claims on say a product and 8:24you know an Amazon or Google or 8:26Microsoft or Facebook goes out in 8:28certain some premium clearly on your 8:30claims it kind of does the data 8:31personalized answers let's sue me if 8:34they do that that is a that is a 8:36goldmine if you can actually prove that 8:37we've made a lot of options as the David 8:41right yeah you know you you can sell if 8:45you can sell here you're right - another 8:48big guy right who can then take on the 8:51Microsoft the Google they're making 8:54Facebook um you know you actually could 8:57hire an attorney like Oh lightning right 9:00and could pursue a pre litigation and 9:02seek settlement if it's really that 9:04clear we would do it include to a 9:07validity opinion to make sure that those 9:10claims are indeed valid that you would 9:11get felt when they peaked out 9:14patent trial appeal board case were to 9:17be started and then we would do 9:18infringement of pain okay what are those 9:21two things were done I mean that's 9:23that's kind of an odd touchdown right if 9:26if a company that Bay is ignoring even 9:29well plane cringing they're in big 9:31trouble 9:31right you have rights and you have 9:34protection you don't need to go through 9:36what might be we might think of as 9:38community you know unburden some 9:41litigation look you've got an attorney 9:44an opinion that's reputable they will 9:47sell right well I'm in you know not glad 9:51you said that because we don't make some 9:53listeners go a little bit better about 9:55it to know that it little guy can't 9:57stand a chance if something happens you 9:59know the big fear is oh my gosh they 10:02don't have a lot of enough of money to 10:03protect themselves and go after the big 10:05guys and a lot of cases that's true but 10:08then again what you're just saying is 10:09that if you if things are done right a 10:11little guy has a chance and that's 10:13really that's that's really great to 10:16know I'm glad they was able to talk 10:18about that um so just real quick uh it 10:22this may sound like a really funny 10:24question is there one particular and 10:27Eirene jump in here to if you feel if 10:30you know something here is there one 10:32particular now without disclosing any 10:33names or anything particularly for story 10:36of someone who basically was had to 10:41fight against their intellectual 10:42property and a little guy let's talk do 10:45you know of anything like that in 10:47particular that you know and I think a 10:49lot of inventors are interested because 10:51this one the biggest topic that top date 10:53they talk to me about is protecting and 10:55fear of losing you know let's see Irene 11:00jump in but I mean really isn't you know 11:05cut 11:07nothing comes to mind I'm trying to 11:09collect good yeah I'm eating let's go 11:14that's a good thing dinner good I said 11:18there is one case don't say it horror 11:21story but it's where you know this guy 11:24came to us after they secured their 11:26patent right ma there helped to provide 11:29the patent after it was granted and so 11:32we are representing them on a case and 11:33it's it's got a we did write two claims 11:36so we an early look into it and you know 11:38it's got some good coverage and it's in 11:41the artificial intelligence space boss 11:44right and the way that is drafted is 11:50it's a method and process might and 11:54while we have strong suspicions that you 11:58know for example Microsoft and among 12:01many are likely infringing it's 12:04extremely hard to pinpoint any actual 12:07offerings or publications and it is just 12:12in that case it's just hard because it's 12:14you need to be under the hood you need 12:16to be at Microsoft to tell how that's 12:21done and so it's as I know this kind of 12:22example is kind of a we're kind of stuck 12:24we don't have a good enough case to move 12:27forward on that front and I think 12:31looking on ice I would have had the 12:33chance to write to claims would have 12:35been more much more trying to attach to 12:38tangible things try to attack do things 12:40that will have to be outside the company 12:42so it's just a really kind of word of 12:45the wise about claim draft so important 12:47to make sure that they're ready not just 12:49to cover the technology with 12:51infringement in my thinking about 12:53potentially enforcing the right on the 12:56broadness or big reasons why I mean 12:58first I'm kind of biased but I advise 13:01might work with patent attorneys that's 13:04just that agents donate it's going to 13:06get the job done they're using claims 13:07written and prosecuted through the 13:09examiner but they may not be thinking 13:11about the way the law is written and how 13:13you need to enforce those rights we'll 13:14get to a place where you're ready to 13:17enforce right well let me look 13:20with that said I want to ask you a 13:22question and I didn't plan on this 13:24question but it's kind of brought me to 13:26it 13:27there's a big you know misunderstanding 13:30about provisional patent applications 13:32and putting claims any provisional 13:33patent application now I do know that no 13:35one ever examines a provisional patent 13:37application per se but you know these 13:40suggest putting claims in provisional 13:42patent applications for later on for you 13:44know kind of maybe developing into a 13:46preferring utility patent uses something 13:49you know we do just one one one fairly 13:54more very broad claim there are a few 13:58edges in European Union that will look 14:02at it real hard if you don't have a 14:04claim and sometimes though actually they 14:07won't give it a priority benefit it's 14:09still up in the air up with a few 14:11centuries there that are not so novelty 14:14you really want you to have at least one 14:17claim at the provisional if you're going 14:19to be claiming priority to it maybe it's 14:21not a generic but no there's no reason 14:23to go through whole set of claims it one 14:25to view that the provisional is you can 14:27lay out all your Turnitin embodiments 14:29layout as broadly and your invention of 14:33course has to be enabled for it's going 14:35to be the requirement to have the 14:37priority which you're not going to want 14:39to walk into specific you know claims 14:42until you're really ready 14:44you know the countries called exam you 14:47can you start testing right go go to our 14:49photo typing if you haven't already 14:50tested earn things sell it right and 14:54save it takes and then nine months work 14:57start over to nailing down what it is 15:00you're Venice claims it okay 15:03great that's great information Carmen is 15:05any questions you have you were thinking 15:08well I have so many but is good because 15:14as Jeff and as you guys also know is one 15:18of one of the biggest fears of all the 15:21inventors actually 99% of event does 15:23that come to me come to Jeff and 15:25probably to you guys is the fear of 15:27their idea getting stolen and it it's 15:30it's something that you want them to be 15:32cautious about but we don't want them to 15:34let it drive them to the point where 15:36they don't move their ideas forward 15:37correct you know and that so happens a 15:41lot and but there is a lot of it and the 15:44reason I love your guys firm is the way 15:46giving out books giving out information 15:47you're not just going to land a client 15:50you're trying to educate your clients 15:52and and it's a great thing because an 15:55educated chronic that comes to your firm 15:57it's just a lot easier for you to help 15:59them up sure okay so I really real quick 16:02question we have a lot of times clients 16:05will come to us with their idea and 16:06they'll have a provisional or they'll 16:09have a patent in process but they're 16:11still asking us to sign a nondisclosure 16:13agreement integral for us to sign a 16:16nondisclosure agreement in the first 16:17place because many times simultaneously 16:21as you guys know inventions are being 16:23invented it happens a lot and will same 16:27types of inventions many times but you 16:30get to the point where we really hard 16:32for us to sign non-disclosure agreement 16:33but then I find they have a provisional 16:35patent or they have an actual patent I 16:37think that they just don't know the 16:40process so is it okay for me to say they 16:42don't need an NBA at that point um well 16:47so and I read inserting them do all the 16:49talking and doing a jump in on this one 16:52I would just say and I start client to 16:55do that in certain cases so when a 17:00commercial patent application is filed I 17:03will tell them that yes you're you are 17:05now able to publicize your invention you 17:08can share with third parties and you 17:11don't need an idiot I tell them it 17:13because it's a very entry it's very rich 17:15a lot of conversations you're a 17:16scientist like what do you mean and you 17:18know big companies bolt sign them 17:20because they don't want to be liable say 17:22your ideas all the time 17:23no these but they want to be able to be 17:24free in the market those exactly what I 17:27could see acting like a huge advantage 17:30to add a provisional file but here's the 17:33catch you only want you can only share 17:36and publicize and sell what's been filed 17:39so often times it happens between 17:41provisional and not original you can get 17:43improvements you do testing you're like 17:45oh that I should have should've put a 17:47wing nut 17:48trust or whatever and should be using 17:50this type of aluminum Optima not this 17:52that fighting that improvement you need 17:55to keep under wraps and you need to 17:57either file a subsequent provisional 17:59which you can do or file your non 18:00provisional senator if you don't have 18:02money right away to when a file that's 18:05in that times you want to stop work with 18:08an NDA if you have an improvement a 18:10change even after you found the 18:13non-disclosed been on a non provisional 18:16you would want to keep improvements on 18:18your hat because you can file 18:19continuation applications a lot of 18:22reasons they're helpful but I think 18:25you're right you know that a lot of 18:27inventors are just ignorant and so those 18:30do it because just to be safe for just 18:32in case you know they'll have to sign in 18:34it doesn't make sense it creates some 18:36friction and if they're just likely 18:40uneducated but they are sharing 18:43additional information and improvements 18:45beyond what they filed and they're 18:47starting to do that's that's a really 18:50good piece of information the 18:51improvements part of it very important 18:54because that's kind of what we do here 18:56is that they'll come to us with an idea 18:58and it happens with with with Jeff and 19:00his crew that they'll have that base 19:02idea and just giving them improvements 19:05or we are and we're talking back and 19:06forth about it and you know we know it 19:09is a gray area there but but no that's 19:12really important because I want to make 19:14sure that I'm not trying to make them 19:16think that I'm just trying to get their 19:17idea from when you know and I'm like 19:18right listen we don't sign NDA's but you 19:21can tell me about your idea you know but 19:26it's really important I just wanted to 19:27kind of touch base with that and let our 19:30listeners hear that from your and and 19:32from there but if it's okay real quick I 19:34wanted to ask I read a question JD's 19:36Hodja 19:37I'm Irene alright Irene so so inventor 19:43comes to us and and that will we'll talk 19:48to them it'll be a new idea or something 19:49that's them do you feel that there is a 19:51certain time or phase that they should 19:54put in a provisional or or an actual 19:56utility patent or whatever type of 19:58patent is there a certain time that they 20:01should do it is it in 20:02the development phase it's a prototyping 20:04phase or that they should definitely 20:06have it or is there just it could be any 20:09at any point so I'm actually not about 20:12an attorney the city's probably better 20:15at answering this question but if I may 20:20maybe I add a little bit about you know 20:22when you guys were talking about MBA 20:24from and I definitely agree with JD that 20:27eventually having an MBA is very 20:31important especially when you have any 20:36improvements I made and then if you have 20:38any trade secrets or any confidential 20:40information that you want to perfect and 20:42I just like to point out really quick 20:44when attaching an NDA in place it's also 20:46important because it gives you a cause 20:51of action for a breach of contract in 20:53addition to providing any damages or 20:55injunction relief that are defining the 20:58agreements this is something that I'd 21:01like to point out really quick but the 21:03second question I'm not externally sure 21:05how to answer it um 21:06data can you help sure sure thing so 21:09okay and you made sure to repeat it with 21:11something to because I kind of tuned out 21:12a little bit yeah I said this already 21:14rain is nice so so so and and maybe Jeff 21:18can add in after other but well the fine 21:21will come to us they can have just an 21:22idea I have a sketch prototype a sample 21:26is in your opinion do you think that 21:29there's a phase or a time that an 21:32inventor should be able to kind of roam 21:33free but at a certain point before they 21:36move forward should they have a 21:37provisional word or definitely put in 21:39paper or for utility before they move 21:41any further is it should there be a 21:43stopping point before yeah absolutely 21:47and there's something we had to go into 21:49our process in our invention disclosure 21:52process as we say look we need to say 21:56stop inventing wait this is your 21:59invention you agree we agree this is 22:02your invention and yes there's there's 22:04time let's take to get there which you 22:06haven't documented that's we're going to 22:09go search on okay and then within that 22:11it's sort of this great okay to have an 22:13invention because you believe in it 22:16you can write it and draw it such that 22:18it could actually work right firth 22:21intended nervous next you have to have a 22:23prototype that the huge punctuation 22:25where I agree with that 100% they think 22:29they have to have these huge machines up 22:31and running the software already working 22:34no not at all you need to be able to 22:35have a schematic at the word to be able 22:38to talk and relate how it would be done 22:40you don't actually have to have it 22:42though right to have a patent granted 22:45let alone apply you should apply it when 22:48you have it when you first have it 22:51articulated all the way so what what I 22:54was getting to is that that when you 22:56have those novel functions and features 22:58identified that's when you want to do 23:01the search and start the process right 23:02away and the search comes back at you 23:05fat novel and novelty and there's no 23:08there's no not obvious that's cute we're 23:10file file right away yeah especially if 23:13I mean to me if they're planning on 23:15moving this product forward and they 23:17believe in it they're going to move 23:18forward so it's you might as well get it 23:19going can I 23:21absolutely there's one like Olympia I 23:23want to mention that we usually advise 23:25on is right away as oh so software we 23:29touch on differences in copyright 23:32protection versus patenting and that in 23:37a lot of cases you know things like the 23:39code is not animal right you would never 23:41want to patent cold the actual 23:43JavaScript and HTML that that's very 23:47much akin to the words on it on a book 23:49an author's writing not necessarily the 23:53function throwing you're more effective 23:54functional aspects of the invention that 23:56was protected and so you could 23:59potentially keep the code as a trade 24:01secret it's a trade knowing when to hold 24:04back and not file fat on things is 24:06really important for things like methods 24:09and processes like that one that I 24:11coca-cola it's like oh okay FC 24:14absolutely 24:15ring those are things that have gone 24:17well past the twenty years that's a 24:20modern for men right living meaning you 24:22have something so special that will have 24:24value past twenty years you want to 24:27think about keeping this a trade secret 24:29there's a lot of you know things need to 24:31do to keep it in place it does vary a 24:33little bit state to state but is now in 24:35federal enforcement mechanism for trade 24:37secrets which is really cool it does 24:39take some work and you should see 24:40counsel to make sure you're checking a 24:42trade secrets properly but we can do 24:44that if old IP were having good a lot of 24:46other firms are too that's great I've 24:49got a question um let's just say that 24:52someone just file patent and then 24:56there's changes in their design during 24:58that during that the actual efforts been 25:00the applications and file 25:02what doesn't have it are doing that in 25:03that case what an inventor trying to 25:06make changes come on come on man you 25:09know for those things I mean when you 25:14file that application you at attorneys 25:16jobs I believe to articulate that darn 25:21invention as broadly as you can and try 25:24nothing or see any changes down the road 25:27and describe those they may not 25:30necessarily clean them all but you'll 25:31have it as backing to the EKU's fall 25:33it's called a continuation application 25:35you can make as you can have a reference 25:37fact that non provisional even though 25:39aspects you know de and F aren't this 25:42sort of articulated in the description 25:44but a B and C are right you bring from 25:47that reference and have a new patent so 25:49you can change the design significantly 25:51enough between a new novel features that 25:54are hopefully you know passable above 25:58and beyond your original and you should 26:01protect those under a separate parallel 26:03application great that's that explains a 26:07lot to me what about you call nothing 26:08really so hopefully going to help a lot 26:10a lot of people out there I know we're 26:12kind of you get close to me in the time 26:14you're at one question that I want to 26:16ask what um what piece of advice as an 26:19attorney do you just give to inventor 26:22starting out what where do you suggest 26:24them starting well and I love this mega 26:28deck question I mean I I always advise 26:31clients to think about their invention 26:33not in terms of the eleven so come to me 26:37and think of all gosh I just want that 26:38pad this ones that face paper with the 26:40ribbon on it and then one 26:42our clothes yeah and oh my gosh how 26:45wrong that is 26:46and you need to have a business plan to 26:50go on technology protection very good 26:53this is where Irene comes in a lot of 26:55our team will help put together a 26:57business plan we'll do this a custom not 26:59a weekend as a means right and taking 27:01time with you to charge more but we 27:03advise them to even do it on their own 27:04Kate articulate what it is you want to 27:06do how you're going to monetize this in 27:08technology to get it move forward 27:10whether it's your license or sales or 27:12starting up your own business and 27:14excluding everyone else from doing it 27:15that's so important so important 27:18understand the marketing industry how 27:20you're going to how you're different 27:21from your competitors all that good 27:23stuff and just know that what your plan 27:25is again to the day so we can help 27:27structure that and do the things that I 27:29read those for our clients and help them 27:31fight real run companies are individuals 27:33that want to buy your technology that is 27:36excellent advice I wasn't expecting that 27:38answer honestly because that you know I 27:40write business plans myself and I always 27:42have and you're right you need to have a 27:44direction on where you want to go and 27:46that's I think that's the big problem 27:48lodging dinners they get excited they 27:49get really at all hey I want this be on 27:53the market I want to get a patent but 27:54they don't have a plan and yes that's 27:56excellent advice not only appreciate you 27:58saying that 27:59sure thanks I will I would say that when 28:02you are getting pretty close to where 28:05you have a potential buyer or licensee 28:08then you really start to think about the 28:10key terms of of the licensing terms 28:13itself you know certain terms like 28:16whether you won our licenses as a 28:17non-exclusive license or exclusives the 28:22territory of you know what countries you 28:25would like to allow the licensee to to 28:29be able to use your technology 28:31certain things like that a lot of 28:33defines you know people get really 28:35excited when they find someone who are 28:38interested in licensing or buying the 28:41invention they forgot about all these 28:43key terms that are actually really 28:45matter you know down the line you need 28:48to put the period of time as well 28:50you know just how long you want to have 28:53to like it before 28:55who will be responsible for paying for 28:58the patent Constitution C or sort of 29:00maintenance key I mean those are the 29:01things that are very useful you know 29:04down the road because it's upright when 29:07you have to pay for this after the 29:09maintenance fee if after a certain 29:12period of time that is actually 29:14excellent advice and you're right now I 29:16think this that's where the rub comes 29:18into the lot of dinners they don't even 29:20understand some of the terms you just 29:22said and that's where I come in Clay's 29:24come in come into play to teach them and 29:27coach them on this and exactly those 29:29things exclusives non-exclusive minimum 29:31guarantees what our royalty is what our 29:34advances this is all extreme important 29:36stuff you're right territories very 29:38important these are all great things 29:40that winner should learn to have in 29:43their in their in their tools it's as 29:46far as getting your product to the 29:47market and the business plan that they 29:49put into place this is great stuff thank 29:51you I mean through Jenner jacking them 29:53should
