This blog is an attempt to communicate with small business owners (or individual inventors) who are interested in coming to a better understanding on how they should protect their intellectual property. The focus is on patents, although we cannot talk about patents only when questions of intellectual property come up.

I am a registered United States Patent Agent. I will tell you what that means later. There are already a number of blogs that get into a lot of detail on patents that are quite interesting for other patent agents and attorneys. But we are going to try to focus on small business people who only know enough about patents to be dangerous and attempt to help them to become less dangerous. We will try to regularly communicate ideas on why and how you can protect your ideas, and get into some of the many misconceptions about patent law.

Feel free to ask questions. I may even know the answers some of the time.

I hope to get to know all of the readers better. Feel free to communicate.
