Publisher's Summary

Think you need a patent? Think again. Many of the products Stephen Key has licensed required no intellectual property protection whatsoever, yet have made millions in royalties. But Key also knows what it takes to protect a big idea. Years ago, after reading about how medication bottles rarely contain enough space for the information that needs to be printed on them, he was inspired to develop an innovative label technology. The Spinformation rotating label has been licensed on products the world over, is protected by 20 U.S. and international patents, and has received more than 13 industry awards.
To put it simply: Key knows how to use intellectual property to profit.
This audiobook will teach you how to:

Get a licensing contract with or without intellectual property
Write a provisional patent application that stops others from stealing your idea
Find and hire a killer patent attorney (they are not all created equal!)
Save thousands of dollars on legal expenses
File patents that have true value
Negotiate a win-win agreement
It also details Stephen's experience defending his patents in Federal Court--a David versus Goliath saga he has never before written about at length--as well as provides tips about how to avoid a licensing contract from going bad.

Excellent for Newbies and Experienced Inventors

Would you listen to Sell Your Ideas With or Without a Patent again? Why?

Yes. While I am very experienced through the patent process with a patent issued, and several pending, the nuggets of knowledge presented make the case to come back and listen again. I found 80% of the information basic to the intellectual property and patent process; however, the true magic was in the 20% of lessons learned, practical ways to implement or develop a provisional patent application further, or to negotiate patents. The bookcamp service offered by Inventright to potential patent holders is worthy to look into.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sell Your Ideas With or Without a Patent?

Stephen Key's fight with Lego over patent infringement.

Have you listened to any of Don Moffit’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but I found the presenter credible and easy to listen to. Until I wrote this review, I assumed the narrator was the author. Further testimony to Don Moffit's credibility.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Actually similar film already made in Flash of Genius, for inventor of the time delay wiper blade against Ford. This film would be How to Avoid Legal Battles with Ford, Lego and other big players"

Any additional comments?

Great read even if you are not an inventor. I am a big fan of The Great Courses, books on contract law and business best practices. This book is at the top of the list.

Brain Food. All I can eat.

One of the best from Stephen I have ever consumed over and over again. Thanks for sharing and leading the way for us small people. I am Stephen Key. ;-)
