Legal corner: how to minimize risk of losing patent rights

James Kozuch: When an invention appears potentially patentable, the inventor should consult with a patent attorney without delay. Often, the patent attorney will advise that a patent application be prepared and filed promptly before the invention is publicized, used in public, or offered for sale. If such advice is not sought or followed, some patents issued in the United States may be susceptible to being invalidated later on for one of several possible reasons. Inventors of emerging technologies such as microsystems and nanotechnology are vulnerable to that scenario.
