The process of innovation, from initial concept, development, pre-filing patent searches and patent application, through to production, marketing and establishing and protecting the product is described in relation to the author's experiences as a successful inventor and entrepreneur. The main product referred to is a non-spill drinking vessel which solves a long-recognised problem in a simple and practical way, reflected in its success in the marketplace around the world. The crucial role in this process of a sound patent search before filing well-drafted patent applications is described, as is the use of patent searches before deciding to support other innovations.
I am an independent inventor and entrepreneur. In general, I develop my products, sub-contract manufacture and establish them in the market place before eventually granting licences. To date, my most commercially successful invention has been a non-spill drinking vessel, operated by the sole use of suction. This technology has been widely applied to children's trainer cups.
نتیجه گیری انگلیسی
I have a number of new projects in progress including some (in partnership) with other inventors whom I may be funding. For these particular projects I am investing in commercial searches by the UK Patent Office, prior to entering into partnership. This enables me to evaluate the strength of their patents and to feel reasonably confident that they would stand up in court, should the need arise. This service has already proved worthwhile in establishing that one potential project was not a sound investment.
