MindMatters Publishes New White Paper on Patent Review Team Best Practices
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Pittsburgh, PA
February 13, 2012 — MindMatters Technologies (mindmatters.net), a leading provider of intellectual property management solutions published a new white paper by John Gabrick on the best practices for patent review teams.
Read about how to get the most from your patent review process in this free white paper, Top Ten Best Practices for Patent Review Teams.
Written for managers, participants, and administrators of an organization’s patent review team, it provides a framework for establishing a highly efficient invention review process. Whether you already have a team in place or are considering starting a team, the paper offers suggestions ranging from rewards to team composition.
According to Gabrick, “When patent programs are established, organizations naturally consider the process for collecting inventions, concepts, and ideas—all of the up front issues, yet only give cursory thought to the review and management process.” Few seldom consider what they’ll do with the large number of inventions that often get submitted, believing that having too many will be a good problem. And while it’s important to make sure that you have a good supply of inventions, the real value of an innovation program is actually finding the best to patent.
