Here, there and everywhere they’re given the impression that no matter what their invention, they must patent it if they are to stand any chance of making money from it. Worse, it’s often the first advice new inventors get, from professional advisers who in many cases don’t actually know much about patents. The myth is reinforced on TV programmes like Dragon’s Den where ‘Have you patented it?’ is a routine question, heavy with the implication that you’re a loser if you haven’t.
In practice, there is a lot wrong with this system. So as an antidote, Patenting your invention: the ugly truth lays it on with a trowel. And we make no apologies for weighing up all the complex pros and cons.
