Finding The Patent Professor®
I vividly recall the moment I discussed an idea with my son Brandon about building a cloud-based software application that allows artists and cartoonists to collaborate with writers and thought leaders to express critical thought.
The media to realize this collaboration would be illustrative art in a comic strip format. The idea seemed like a rather simple and socially important one that would allow the general public and social commentators to visually express sometimes deeply opposing and controversial stories and ideas.
This could be implemented using a uniquely organized online platform design covering limitless subject matter that spans the vast spectrum of human experiences and opinions. While very excited to share these ideas – I knew that if I chose to reap any benefits of owning such an invention, I risked losing it to copycats (and future patent trolls).
My experience as an IT application software developer and architect made me very aware of the importance of product proprietorship and the protection of intellectual property.
The next decision I had to then make would have to be a wise one: I had to find a reputable international patent attorney who could craft a bulletproof patent.
