Investing In Patents Website Launched

My new book “Investing In Patents” describes the patent system from a perspective of an investor in a startup company.

SoftCover005@0,33xAngel or venture capital investors often just “check the box” for patents, but few really understand how the system works.  Most investors are shocked to know that many of the patents their portfolio companies are filing are actually damaging, not helping the company.

Investing In Patents explores many different aspects of patent law, including how startups use patents, why provisional applications are often the wrong thing to do, how exclusive licenses make a company immune to lawsuits, why the first patent is often the worst patent in the portfolio, and other topics.

Investing In Patents releases on April 26.  You can place pre-orders before then.
