Intellectual property law is currently exploding, as demonstrated by the growth of technology transfer offices in universities. More and more scientists, companies, and institutions are rushing to secure intellectual property rights for their ideas and inventions. This process frustrates many people; patent laws are constantly changing, and most books about them are either overly technical or boring.

It is easy to read and brimming with essential information and advice compounded from FAQs posed by the author's academic and industrial clientele.

Protecting and Idea is a must read for every engineer, scientist, or amateur inventor.
