Patent BookSell Your Ideas With or Without A Patent

Think you need a patent? Think again. Many of the products Stephen Key has licensed required no intellectual property protection whatsoever, yet have made millions in royalties. But Key also knows what it takes to protect a big idea. Years ago, after reading about how medication bottles rarely contain enough space for the information that needs to be printed on them, he was inspired to develop an innovative label technology. The Spinformation rotating label has been licensed on products the world over, is protected by 20 U.S. and international patents, and has received more than 13 industry awards.

To put it simply: Key knows how to use intellectual property to profit.

This book will teach you how to:

•           Get a licensing contract with or without intellectual property

•           Write a PPA that stops others from stealing your idea

•           Find and hire a killer patent attorney (they are not all created equal!)

•           Save thousands of dollars on legal expenses

•           File patents that have true value

•           Negotiate a win-win agreement

It also details Stephen’s experience defending his patents in Federal Court—a David versus Goliath saga he has never before written about at length—as well as provides tips about how to avoid a licensing contract from going bad.

Stephen is THE licensing guru. I've been a product developer for 22 years and have even appeared as a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show, back in 2007. I know enough to know that Stephen's common sense approach is the fastest and smartest way to bring a new product to market. He has become my go-to guru for everything having to do with licensing. A must read for anyone interested in bringing their ideas to market the fastest and most profitable way possible.

This is, hands down, the best book on writing a PPA that I have been able to find. Worth every penny of buying if you are considering pursuing any kind of patent protection. Thank you,
