What is Patentable?

Jeffrey Schox, Schox Patent Group

Jeffrey Schox, a patent attorney and lecturer at Stanford University, discusses the best way to describe your unique invention to get a patent application approved. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office approves 60 to 70 percent of applications, and an ideal description for an invention is about 200 words and could outline a handful of steps, according to Schox.
