Late in the afternoon on Thursday, March 24, 2011, the purported patent reform bill from the House of Representatives began circulating. The House patent reform bill is largely identical to the Senate version – S. 23. There are some differences, one rather major difference, but the Senate first to file provisions remain intact. The House bill would still grant the Patent Office the right to use all of the funds collected, as did S. 23. The House bill also would grant the United States Patent and Trademark Office fee setting authority, as did S. 23, but then curiously goes on to set the fees that the USPTO charges. It seems unclear why on one hand you would set the fees and in another section of the bill say that the USPTO can vary any fees defined. Aside from the minor differences in language that are largely differences without a distinction, the one big thing that the House bill would do is extend the prior user rights defense under 35 U.S.C. 273 to patent infringement to all patents and not just business method patents.

Sudoku is a logic based, combinatorial number placement puzzle. The objective is to fill a 9×9 grid with digits so that each column, each row, and each of the nine 3×3 sub-grids that compose the grid (also called "boxes", "blocks", "regions", or "sub-squares") contains all of the digits from 1 to 9. The puzzle setter provides a partially completed grid, which typically has a unique solution. The problem with the current method of playing Sudoku is that once you fill in the squares you can't change them. Much like a crossword puzzle if you need to make changes later there is no room to do it. After running into this problem for years, Inventor Nancy B. of Florida, finally invented a way to solve it. According to some sources over 100 million people play Sudoku worldwide. This creates a very large market for Nancy's new product idea. The premise behind the invention is that the Sudoku board Nancy created is erasable. This makes it easy for the player to go back and make corrections if needed. After manufacturing 19,000 units of The Erasable Sudoku [...]
“I have a new invention that I’ve been working on. I’m just not sure how to actually go about producing and marketing my invention. Do I need to arrange for manufacturing on my own, which seems like a challenging process in itself, or are there other options that I can explore for producing and marketing my invention?” Ultimately, after securing a patent (or patent-pending) every inventor reaches a crossroads where they need to decide how to proceed with commercializing their invention. Do they develop, manufacture and market the product on their own? Or do they explore partnering/licensing with a company who will then bear much of the financial risks of proceeding? Whatever the case, after the idea has been protected with a patent, the inventor must weigh these options and decide which one is the right choice for his or her specific situation. If you are new to the business of inventing or are not really sure how an inventor actually makes money from an invention, consider the following options. Licensing the invention for royalties: A license agreement is when the inventor [licensor] agrees [...]
New Product Consulting is proud to launch the new and improved Disposable E Cigarette to the market. The Disposable E Cigarette is a major improvement over the current E Cigs we have seen out there so far. This new disposable design allows the user to dispose of the product when done rather than having to bring it back home and plug it in like the older models. It's environmentally friendly, so no worries there. It's great for beating the smoking ban in certain restaurants and bars. The product is smokeless and odorless. There is no tar or ash which makes it a healthier alternative to regular cigarettes. Since we launched The Disposable E Cigarette in some of the bars and casinos in Las Vegas we have seen an overwhelming response. As an added bonus actress Katherine Heigel was recently on the David Letterman show talking about how the E Cigarette is helping her quit smoking. If you are interested in purchasing or distributing The Disposable E Cigarette please contact Brian Hardison of New Product Consulting at 1-888-680-4869.
