Drafting your own patent disclosure document

By David French

In our previous posting, we addressed the issue of getting to the point in drafting a patent application. I suggested that inventors would be well-served if they did make the attempt to draft their own patent disclosure document. I strongly recommended against proceeding without the support of a patent professional.

This requires understanding what is patentable and exercising the discipline to stay focused.
