This is like the gold rush days. Imagine being able to lay claim to future products!

“First to file” is not working out for small businesses in Canada, and the UK’s patent system is “broken”. The EU, which also operates under first to file, declared an “innovation emergency”. Questions remain as to why the US would change its patent law to a first to file system to harmonize with other countries that lack the innovation potential that America currently has. It may well add up to major obstacles for future small business start-ups, and hinder job growth. “While there may be pros and cons to this act, we do know from other countries that first to file does not favor small business, and we have an 18-month window to get our (IP) intellectual property protected before first to file becomes law. And the window may be even shorter than that, because corporate inventors filing under the new act can claim protection if they publicly disclosed their idea up to 12 months prior to their patent filing. So says Mark McKitrick and Kim Sena, authors of a new invention workbook titled “The Complete Guide to Inexpensive Ideaing”.
“With the impending first to file law favoring big business, and the world’s playing field shrinking, I cannot imagine why anyone would not be rushing to file patents on existing ideas, or thinking of new ideas and filing,” stated Mr. McKitrick. “Patents filed now will fall under the existing first to invent rules, which are advantageous to small business inventors. We make provisional patent filing easy, affordable, and understandable with our new book.” Mr. McKitrick adds that when the new patent law goes into effect, large corporations will rush to file ideas that aren’t even fully developed. “There will be cases where corporations will file three, four, or more patents on the way to developing an entire concept. They can easily afford to do this. The typical person with an idea can now file multiple patent applications by utilizing our new workbook. This allows the person to lay claim to their idea, even if they don’t plan to develop it right away. Our book helps to level the playing field.”
Mr. McKitrick and Dr. Sena have written “The Complete Guide to Inexpensive Ideaing”. This book offers a complete inventor’s guide from the “aha” moment of product conception through the entire process of development of the new idea, and is meant for people from all walks of life with any type of idea. Included are invaluable proprietary templates for writing provisional patents, business plans, and product brochures. The easy-to-follow “Ideaing” guidebook will also, among many other benefits, help the inventor determine if their idea is worth pursuing before they pour money into it.
The authors, who have enjoyed many successes (and learned many expensive and character-building lessons) along their respective paths, will save readers hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars with their experience and suggestions. The reader will learn about patent and market research, writing their patent, developing their product, writing a business plan, finding angel and venture capital, and much more. Just as importantly, they will learn when to consult specialists (patent attorneys, prototype experts, etc.). This book will show inventors what and what not to do themselves, and how to make their time spent with specialists more productive (and therefore less expensive).
“Our goal, utilizing our years of experience in the idea development process, is to empower people in all walks of life with the necessary tools that can make them successful,” states Dr. Sena, “and our templates save a tremendous amount of time and money. Best of all, people will look and feel like an experienced inventor, regardless of their walk in life”.
