Patents and trademarks help you protect your ideas, secure your market share, and ward off competition. But the problem is, many people waste a lot of money trying to patent an already patented idea. How can you be sure if your product or idea is worth pursuing a patent for? Patent Attorney Rich Goldstein says that the best thing you can do is to go through a patent evaluation.
But what is a patent evaluation and who should you go to if you think you’re ready to take the next step with your product?
In this episode of Inspired Insider, Dr. Jeremy Weisz talks Rich Goldstein about how entrepreneurs can protect and profit from their ideas using patents and licenses. They discuss the lucrative ways people have used patents across different industries, tools to help you get started, how to determine if your product is worth patenting, and who to turn to for help and support. Stay tuned.
