This blog will discuss the videos from the YouTube channel: HowToPatent. The HowToPatent YouTube channel is live. I will be posting videos shortly and regularly. This channel will discuss the fundamental aspects of Patent Prosecution. The hope is to address 80% of the questions inventors, entrepreneurs, and even large corporations have about the patenting process.

The questions that I will attempt to answer are questions that I get on a regular basis when meeting people in the San Francisco Bay Area. My practice is in the heart of Silicon Valley where technology is King. I meet people from all echelons of the tech industry. The vast majority of them consistently ask very similar questions.

These questions concern Patent Prosecution time lines, Patent Prosecution costs, technology areas, types of patentable ideas, provisional patents, how patents can be monetized, and many others. As I field these questions with the inventors/entrepreneurs that I meet, I will create videos to share the learning with other people who want to know.

I will also be reviewing the comments to this blog and the HowToPatent Videos looking for common themes of misunderstandings or inquires and attempt to address them as well.
