An Interesting Patent Success Story
When an individual inventor asks during an
for examples of a successful patent story, I have several that I mention.
For individual inventors and entrepreneurs, I often mention the story of a local locksmith. He practiced as a locksmith for years. Then he had a good
idea related to his locksmith practice. He went through the process of having us perform a patent search. After the search, we prepared
and filed a non-provisional patent application -
After the patent was allowed -
we prepared and filed a continuation patent application for
broader claims -
He ultimately got all of his patents allowed, and went on to give seminars on how to use the invention.
He sold his locksmith business, and went on a tour teaching how to use the invention after the purchase of the device. The patents protected him from someone else making, using, or selling the invention - discussed here. The seminars were apparently enough to allow him to close the locksmith business, and ultimately retire using the income from the seminars. That was quite a success.
We hope you will be the next success story that we can tell people about.
