Learn Basic Patent Reading Skills
With Patent Attorney Damon Kali

As you might expect, most inventors have looked at patents before. However, it's quite often with a sigh and look of bewilderment as to how to get some sort of valuable information from this thing called a patent. 

Inventors quite often don't understand what they are reading when they look at a patent.

Others just look at the pictures in the patent and give the easy to read parts of the patent a quick look making the assumption they know what the patent is protecting. 

What should you really be looking at when you find a patent you think may be relevant to your invention? 

It's all about the claims!

Damon will show you the basics of breaking down claims.

The benefits of understanding a patents claims are.... 

  • Understanding what IS protected
  • Understanding what IS NOT protected
  • Get the info you need to get around other patents
  • Write a stronger patent

Damon will also cover....

  • How to spot a poorly written patent
  • How to know when a patent is a threat to you getting a patent
  • How to know when a patent is nothing to be concerned about


Don't miss this one!

Damon's one of our most popular and giving speakers. He's coming back to share this very important information with you this Saturday!
