I was very excited to file a patent this week, as you might imagine. While I can’t yet give any real details of the filing, I can say it was for a global transportation platform that could, applied correctly with the right resources, dramatically simplify the way individuals travel. I have been asked about the process of filing the patent, and all in all, it was a fairly simple process. Like most work, detail is important, especially when it comes to developing the claims of a patent. Likewise, the language you use can mean the difference between a valid claim and an invalid one.
I have also been asked whether I plan on doing something with the patent. Well, that depends on many different criterion, so we’ll have to wait and see. Regardless, I hope this is my first of many patents to be filed!
