Overview

Hello, my name is David Schwartz. I’m the original inventor of the surface computer, serial entrepreneur of 3 start-ups, creator of the on-line course Intellectual Property BoostCamp, and the author of IP SAVVYS. I want to tell you more about my new book, Utility Patenting for IP SAVVYS. 

 

It is a crash course on utility patenting for both innovators and patent counsel alike. I share my lessons learned over 30 years patenting pro se, filing globally, and licensing for revenues on royalty bearing sales. My objective is to complement my on-line course with a one-stop read that demystifies the process of preparing and filing utility patents with sustainable competitive advantage.  Everything is explained in non-legalease language from the inventor point of view. The book is laid out with concise infographics and easy to digest patent tips and tricks that will give you 20-20 hindsight into what to do, what to say, and when as you journey down the IP corridor of uncertainty.  

 

My core teaching is an engineering discipline for utility patenting I have coined  “The Schwartz Method”. It is a proven framework for patent drafting and the only method you will need in your tool-bag for securing utility patents that issue with clean file wrappers and claims scoped to your intended monopoly rights. 

 

Use the book as a stand-alone resource to refocus your IP workflow or use it in combination with my on-line course to boost your team’s savvy and ensure everyone’s in the IP zone together. Get started today and rein in millions of future value by building a strong patent foundation using TSM.

Here are some more details on the book: This book offers a proven framework for self-managing the process of securing world class utility patents.  If you're on the patenting pathway, uncertain about your critical IP tasks, find out which steps to take and when. This book is your definitive guide to navigating the pathway to patentship, all the while avoiding Fatal Office Action Rejections (FOARs).

IP SAVVYS is "everything utility patents" because the sole focus of the book is drafting and prosecuting Utility Patents with Sustainable Competitive Advantage (SCA). Use this book to get everyone on the team IP SAVVY and change your IP conversation. When everyone is in the IP zone, you will accelerate down your IP learning curve.

I re-worked and perfected my Schwartz method as "a matter of life or death" on dozens of pro sea utility patents, across diverse subject matter. When you use my Universal Patenting Language (UPL) and Guiding Principles (GP) you will be able to change your utility patenting coversation and get your IP quarry at the lowest cost and highest quality.

The book is in TWO PARTS.

Part-1 gets everyone on the same page about patent structure and semantics covering the MPEP rules for filing utility compliant provisional and non-provisional patents in non-legalese terms.

PART-2 I cover the myths and truths about patents and share dozens of conversation changing opportunities to control your patent workflow and patent spend. When you start at T=-5 (conception) and go forward with UPL and GP to the key event, Notice of Allowance, at T=0, you will see how your "world begins" the way you want it to. You control your own destiny.

I use my Big Bang Theory of IP capitalization throughout, to integrate my Schwartz Method with the product development life cycle, enabling patents to pop when your product is marketed. My promise: using this book IP hunters like yourselves can create, draft, and file high quality utility patents with Sustainable Competitive Advantage (SCA), while doing product development, all at the lowest cost.

This book is a stand-alone guide for understanding MPEP, learning The Schwartz Method, and getting SCA utility patents. If you want to boost your understanding and improve your learning outcomes, then use the coupon in the book to take IP-BC/ADVANCED at a substantial discount. IP-BC is my on-line utility patenting course that accompanies this book. You can find the course at :

Dedication:

To my Alma Maters, Cornell MIT BU/SMG, for the educational foundation that inspired me to learn, invent, create, and build value for the world. To my wife Sharon and our two sons Adam and Zack for their trust, collaboration, and steadfast encouragement in my journey down the IP corridor of uncertainty on my pathway to patentship and entrepreneurship.

Description

This book offers a proven framework for self-managing the process of securing world class utility patents. If you're on the patenting pathway, uncertain about your critical IP tasks, find out which steps to take and when using The Schwartz Method (TSM).  Do this, all the while avoiding Fatal Office Action Rejections (FOARs). The sole focus of the book is on drafting and prosecuting Utility Patents with Sustainable Competitive Advantage (SCA). 

Use this book to get yourself and everyone on the team IP SAVVY. When you do, you will be able to improve your IP workflow and change your IP conversations, especially with patent counsel and the patent examiner. 

IP SAVVYS is highly complementary to other utility patenting resources you might also employ and I share when and how to use them together. The book offers trade secrets from my 20 year prosea pursuit of a global patent portfolio that I successfully licensed for worldwide royalty bearing sales. 

I found that when everyone is in the IP zone, you can accelerate down your IP learning curve with mutual trust and an understanding of the utility patent role and tasking for all cohorts in the IP hunt. This book is for innovators and patent counsel alike. Innovators who read this book from CEO to inventor, R&D, engineering, product marketing, and sales will all be talking the same language and be better organized clients for their patent counsel. Patent counsel using this book will have more consistent functional language to use with their clients to get them better organized and to be better clients. 

The juxtaposition of truths with the dispelling of IP myths offers a unique innovator point of view on how to self-manage your pathway to patentship. I re-worked and perfected my Schwartz method as "a matter of life or death" on dozens of pro sea utility patents, across diverse subject matter. 

When you use my Universal Patenting Language (UPL) and Guiding Principles (GP) you will be able to change your utility patenting coversation and get your IP quarry at the lowest cost and highest quality. The book is in TWO PARTS. Part-1 gets everyone on the same page about patent structure and semantics covering the MPEP rules for filing utility compliant provisional and non-provisional patents in non-legalese terms.In PART-2 I cover the myths and truths about patents and share dozens of conversation changing opportunities to control your patent workflow and patent spend. When you start at T=-5 (conception) and go forward with UPL and GP to the key event, Notice of Allowance, at T=0, you will see how your "world begins" the way you want it to.

About the author

David C. Schwartz - Author and Course Instructor, VP IP Dave began building his patent portfolio in 1989 as founder and CEO of Productive Environments, LLC. He filed Pro Sea, prosecuted to publishing, and licensed his global patents over a 20 year journey down the "IP Corridor of Uncertainty. Today Dave's mission, as VP Intellectual Property ESERVGO, is to get you IP Savvy. Dave is NOT AN ATTORNEY. His value proposition is that he authored his book Utility Patenting for IP SAVVYS and his IP-BC course from a serial inventor/entrepreneur's point of view. He delivers this complete MPEP compliant utility patenting book and course as a DIAAY (Do It Almost All Yourself) framework for self-managing the preparation & filing airtight utility patents at the lowest practical legal cost. David's highest level goal is to deliver a utility patenting framework with levels for all IP roles and titles to enable any IP hunter to improve their conversation and utilization of patenting resources. David/ESERVGO does not accept consulting proposals and we do not compete with any other IP resources, whether it's inside or outside IP Counsel, or the Patent Office Examiner. Through the lens of The Schwartz Method (TSM), Dave translates 30 years of pro se IP experience into digestible chunks. His unique contribution is an insiders guide to the complex and dynamic world of IP portfolio building. As an independent inventor and entrepreneur, his patent portfolio dates to inventive work on his seminal invention, a hybrid electronic device providing "mechanical windowing" in a binder he claimed as "The SURFACE". His inventive step offered unexpected parallel visualization of multiple surfaces, compact portability, and application accessibility for multi-dimensional displays in a bound enclosure. David's "hypertext bookwindow" invention preceded Microsoft's "windows" and "surface" brands. The invention was recognized as the first ever pseudo-digital manipulative for "organizing literacy". As is the case with many innovators, he was "way ahead of his time". The computer industry was not quite ready for his packaging innovations. In order to build his business, he licensed preferred embodiments for manufacture as stationery products under the "Bookwindows™" brand. His effort produced a portfolio of over 25 patents, secured "pro se", as sole inventor. He bootstraped the company and financed operations from cashflow, building a self-funded licensing business. The claims in each utility patent he acquired had to stand on their own. His portfolio eventually grew to over 250 non-infringed claims. His company's licensed products were manufactured and sold at all of the big box retailers, and his customers enjoyed success, benefiting from the unique advantage in using the tools to organize their time, work and productivity.Some of the companies he assisted in the IP hunt along with others that marketed and sold his licensed products are listed below. Schwartz has distilled his years of IP experience in the IP SAVVYS book and his IP-Boostcamp course. The content benefits from David's progressive patenting experience in mechanical objects, computer architecture, artificial intelligence, software engineered products, robotics, medical devices, electronic devices, FDA pharmaceutical GDP processes, and educational products. He is recognized as an expert in intellectual property creation, acquisition, IP strategy, licensing, product/industry marketing, and complex business to business selling. Schwartz is credited with founding, managing and growing 3 start-up companies. He has his BSEE from Cornell University where he was the MacMullen Scholar. His MSEE is from MIT and his MBA is from Boston University School of Management. David continues his innovative work, developing innovative medical devices fo treating underserved communities suffering from trauma, in particular pandemic triggered trauma.
