About this item

Hitchcock, a physicist, engineer, and inventor who has worked as a computer consultant and on patent searching and new technology, explains how to do a patent search with only a small amount of effort and cost. He details how the Patent and Trademark Office classifies different types of inventions, how to assign an idea to the right class, how to compare it to similar ideas in the same class, and how to decide whether it is new enough to qualify for a patent. He covers the basics of patents, patent searching, and patent databases, including how to come up with keywords to describe an invention; how to perform simple and advanced internet patent searches through the Patent and Trademark Office website, European Patent Office, Google, and additional sources; and how to use resources at the nationwide network of Patent and Trademark Resource Centers, including the Index to the US Patent Classification System, Manual of Classification, Classification Definitions, CASSIS (Classification and Search Support Information System), WEST (West-based Examiner Search Tool), and EAST (Examiner Automated Search Tool).
