Ward Law Office has recently launched a new video series for inventors, entrepreneurs, and small businesses, called PATENTLY GOOD IDEAS.

The initial set of videos explains the three basic steps that every inventor should take before filing a patent application, namely:

1) properly document your invention
2) avoid the public disclosure
3) do a prior art search.
We believe these videos are a must-see for all inventors and entrepreneurs, and especially those who are new to the patenting process – WLO

We at IGA highly recommend doing some due diligence by taking the time to educate yourself before going through the patent process.
