书籍简介：Revolutionary ideas are often just that – ideas. To realize your vision of bringing an innovation to life you’ll need the knowledge and confidence to protect those ideas from infancy to realization. This game has the highest of stakes and you need an unfair advantage to give you the best possible chance to win. From Shark Tank to Fortune 500 companies, patents play an integral role in value creation, securing venture capital, and acquisition. If you are trying to bring something new into this world, whether you are an entrepreneur or the CEO of a multi-national corporation, your ability to play the patent game could be the difference between success and failure. You need information, but you don’t want to go to law school, read a dry textbook, or pay a patent attorney hundreds of dollars an hour to learn what you need to make smart decisions. The Patent Game will give you this critical information efficiently and effectively. The first half of the book covers the basics of patents, often with game-related analogies, to help you define winning for your company or innovation. The second half will help guide you to one of eighteen different patent strategies that might be the ideal approach for your innovation. Each strategy has an introduction, play-by-play with diagrams, and a practical real-world example. The author, Vance VanDrake, is a patent attorney, law firm partner, and co-founder of multiple early stage and venture-backed companies. He has worked with hundreds of startups and technologists to add over a billion dollars in value to these ventures. He created The Patent Game to serve as an easy-to-understand, comprehensive guide to developing a patent strategy that fits your business needs. Don’t let someone else control the pieces on the board – take control of your own destiny and make your vision a reality.
