[caption id="attachment_361" align="alignleft" width="200"] John Ling, partner at Fay Sharpe LLP[/caption] Filing patent applications with the European Patent Office (EPO) requires a different approach than when filing solely in the U.S. The differences range from administrative to technical. There are, however, filing strategies that will save applicants time and improve their chances of success. “There are many ways to adjust your drafting technique for your U.S. patent application that won’t hurt you when submitting it in America, but will align it with European standards. A little more work up front will save you a lot of money down the road,” says John Ling, partner at Fay Sharpe LLP. Smart Business spoke with Ling about how to save money and ensure success when filing patents with the EPO. How should companies approach filing patents in multiple countries? Some companies file informal provisional patent applications that establish an early effective filing date in the U.S. and then...

Many companies face an unrealized risk when approached by a customer with a problem. Companies will devote a great deal of time and money developing a solution, only to have that customer seek to secretly patent the solution without naming the company’s personnel as inventors or at least co-inventors. “This leads to several bad outcomes, depending upon the particular facts,” says Steve Haas, a partner at Fay Sharpe LLP. “At worst, the company and its other customers can be sued for patent infringement by the first customer, even though the company created the solution. Also, the first customer can source the solution from a third-party supplier without compensating the company that solved the problem — the original company that developed the solution does not get to supply it and cannot stop the new supplier.” Smart Business spoke with Haas about unscrupulous customers that profit from a company’s hard work, and how to avoid...
