- Overview and Underview Simplification versus Oversimplification The Spherical Patent The Common Worker Drives Innovation The Adverse Impact of Überproductivity on Innovation The Evolution (and Devolution) of Patenting in Today's Economy The IP Bazaar The Pervasive Nature of IP Interconnections and Interactions There Is No One-Size-Fits-All Patenting System ReferencesThe IP Universe It's More Complicated than You Think The IP Big Bang Business Entropy: The Disorganization of the Organization To Have Entropy or Not to Have Entropy Manifestations of Patenting System Entropy How Hard Can It Be? Logic Is Dangerous ReferencesBeyond the Spherical Patent Surface Features What Lies Beneath The Examiner Field of View The Self-Imposed Business Value Requirement Patent Portfolio Thermodynamics Patent Value Patent Portfolios The Classical Ideal Patent Gas The Megaexpense of Creating a Megaportfolio ReferencesClassical and Quantum Patent Mechanics Classical Patent Mechanics A Brief Classical Patent Mechanics View of the Patenting Process A Closer (But Still Brief) Look at the Patenting Process Quantum Mechanics Interlude Quantum Patent Mechanics and the Validity Uncertainty Principle To the USPTO, Aunt Betty and Intel Are Equal Measuring versus Filtering Let's Parte! The Presumption of Validity If a Patent Issues in a Forest Measuring Patent Validity What, Then, Does the Patent Office Measure? Provisional Patent Applications Revealed Introduction More Basic Information More about the Effective Filing Date The Spherical Provisional Patent Application Intervening Prior Art The Provisional-to-Nonprovisional Conversion Problem The New-Matter Problem Effective Filing Date and First to File The Scenario from Chapter 5 Revisited How Bad Provisional Patent Applications Happen to Good People It's Not All Bad News The Double-Edged Sword of Infringeability and Validity.
Infringeability-Validity Balance The Infringeability-Validity Curves Claim Zones Fairness and the Infringeability-Validity Balance Claims for Pioneering Inventions Bureaucratic Quantum Tunneling Claim Distortion Claim Fuzziness Patent Quality Lost in IP Space The Exponential Growth of Patenting The Fractal Nature of Innovation Patenting in Dense IP Spaces The Classical Ideal IP Space IP Space Uncertainty IP Black Holes What about Us? Patent Waves and Technology Waves The Transition from Core to Commercialization Patents Know Thy IP Space Prior Art and Patent Application Preparation The Myth of Seeking the Broadest Claims Possible The Freedom to Operate Patent System Operational Reality Existential Reasons for Patenting Patenting outside Shangri-La How to Kill Innovation Status Quo Inertia Top-Down and Bottom-Up Change Business-Legal-Technical Balance The Canonical Patenting System Generation and Documentation No Innovator Left Behind Documenting Innovations Is Not Optional Document Everything The In-Sourcing and Outsourcing Options The IP Project Manager The Need for Parallel Processing A Deeper Look into the Innovation Review Process The Patent Application Review Process Types of Patent Claims Claim ConstructionBusiness Review of Patent Applications That's Obviousness! The Requirement Filters Revisited The History of Obviousness Two Supreme Court Obviousness Decisions The KSR Case USPTO Examination Guidelines for Obviousness Obviousness Rejections The "Secondary Considerations" Wormhole Wormhole Limitations Invention Quenching The Obviousness/Nonobviousness Interface Fitting Patents into a Dense IP Space Inventions and Inventors Where and How Do Most Technology Workers Learn about IP? The IP Elephant in the Room IP Training and EducationIP and Technology Worker Professionalism IP ZanshinAwards and Rewards The IP Performance Metric Changing the IP.
Culture Awards versus Rewards The Importance of Inventorship The General Rule of InventorshipManaging Expectations about Inventorship Inclusion Rather than ExclusionThe Order of Inventors The Coefficient of Shame When Is an Innovation Patentable? Mentoring Independent Inventors Introduction The Conflict of Interest Problem The Lack of Money Problem The Enforcement Problem Chester Carlson Dr. Brian Caldwell, Independent Inventor Independent Inventor Riot Act Central Organizing Principles and Patent Strategies Calling the COPs The No-Patenting COP The Bottleneck IP COP The Commercialization COP New Products from an Old Technology Assertive Licensing The Cross-Licensing COP The One Product, One Patent COP Patenting Product Components Glossary of Useful Terms and Abbreviations IndexNotes appear at the end of each chapter.
