Five More Misconceptions About Patents

Per my current favorite blogger, Bob Shaver, none of the following are true:

  1. I have a “Poor Man’s Patent” so I am entitled to stop others from “taking my invention”.
  2. My invention is worth lots of money because it is patented.
  3. I am not infringing his patent because I changed my design more than ten percent from his patent.
  4. I cannot infringe his patent because I didn’t know about it.
  5. My invention is patented so I have to keep it a secret or I will lose it.
