Welcome to Patent Prophet. We are a business consulting firm, and our goal is to see inventors and small businesses succeed.

Now up front, you should know that I am a lawyer and I do run a successful law practice.  However, I started this venture because I have developed connections which I believe you can benefit from, and I would like to see your product on the shelves of stores across the U.S.  Why?  Because I get personal pleasure by seeing technology advance.  Enough about me — let’s talk about you and why you are here.

Too much can go wrong from the exciting day that one files a patent application to the day it is issued, and it is important for every inventor to be aware of pitfalls that can catch them offguard and appear to devalue their patent.

1) Patent trolls will start calling.

2) Companies to whom you show the idea might steal it from you.

3) You might try to license the patent to a company who does not take you seriously.

4) You might try to manufacture your product and find the costs to be prohibitive.

5) Your product might injure or kill someone.

If you believe that we can be of assistance to you, or if you would simply like to know how we can be of service, please feel free to click on the “Book Now” button below and schedule a phone consultation with someone from our firm. We would be happy to speak to you about your idea, and even if you choose not to use our services, we are honored to be of assistance.

In Asset Protection, Entity Selection, Products Liability on November 15, 2012 at 5:06 pm

5) Your product might injure or kill someone.

This is a real consideration for most small businesses who do not properly protect themselves by using legal entities to limit their liabilities in the case where their product injurs or fatally wounds a customer. Product liability is a rampant area of law, and often something simple as protecting the assets of the patent holder or using a corporate entity to shield the patent holder from lawsuits stemming from the dangerous application of a product can force the inventor into bankruptcy and in some cases, it can subject the inventor to defend in a criminal prosecution.

There is obviously much to consider when your patent is issued, and there are many ways you can benefit from your patented invention. Receiving your patent opens up new gates of opportunity for you which can not only make you a millionaire, but can enable you to contribute to the advancement of society as it learns to embrace and benefit from your idea.
