An Introduction to the Patent System

2002 Federal Judicial Center gov.ntis.ava21157vnb1 Federal Judicial Center – This 17-minute video is designed to be shown to jurors in patent jury trials. It contains important background information intended to help jurors understand what patents are, why they are needed, how inventors get them, the role of the Patent and Trademark Office, and why disputes over patents arise. An Introduction to the Patent System was developed with the assistance of an advisory committee of district judges and patent attorneys. Special care was taken to ensure that it provides an impartial and objective view of the patent process. It is, however, up to the individual trial judge to decide whether or not to use this video in patent jury trials. The Center is simply making it available as a resource. The video downloads and an accompanying sample patent are available from http://www.fjc.gov/public/home.nsf/pages/557 .

  1. Before you spend your money on a patent (unless you have money you don’t have a better use for) I encourage you to read Don Lancaster’s take on the usefulness of patents. http://www.tinaja.com/patnt01.shtml
