105: Patenting Physical Consumer Product Inventions Product Startup

    • Entrepreneurship

Welcome back everyone. Today, I’m very excited to introduce Rich Goldstein to the show. Rich Goldstein is the founder of Goldstein Patent Law. He has landed over 2,000 patents for his clients over the last 25 years. He is also the author of the book the ABA Consumer Guide to Obtaining a Patent. Today Rich is going to share some valuable knowledge to inventors, hardware startups, and small product manufacturers on the types of patents you can obtain for an invention, tips and tricks along the way, and how to continue to protect your intellectual property as your hardware product evolves over the years. Now onto the episode...
Today you will hear us talk about:

Utility vs Design vs Provisional 

Time constraints of each type of patent

Steps that you need to take to preserve your rights

Over time, what do you do to protect with your ongoing development?

You want to make your claims specific enough, that it is still relevant to the marketplace

Filing a continuation in part to an improvement to your product over time

Filing a continuation, slightly different than a continuation in part
