When to File a Patent Application?

Jeffrey Schox, Schox Patent Group

Patent attorney Jeffrey Schox talks about when the best times are to submit provisional applications in advance of filing for a full patent, mapping those points along a general technology-development curve. He describes the critical phase for obtaining a full patent and advises startups to begin the process early, as well as to re-file provisional applications to prevent them from lapsing.
