- Requirements for a patentable invention
- How to invent
- New laws created by President Obama's 2011 America Invents Act
- The process of applying for and obtaining a patent in the U.S. and in foreign countries
- Commercializing inventions and the importance of innovation
Based on lecture notes refined over twenty-five years at The University of Akron, How to Invent and Protect Your Invention contains practical advice, colorful examples, and a wealth of personal experience from the authors.
