Jeffrey Schox, Schox Patent Group

Attorney and Stanford lecturer Jeffrey Schox breaks down the total cost and time for obtaining a U.S. patent and discusses the art of crafting a description broad enough to ensure the best claim protection, but also narrow enough to distinguish an invention from anything previously patented. Schox also explains the value of submitting a provisional application and what it involves.
