Patent And Project Notebooks

Patent notebooks are used to provide legal protection for inventions, but can have many other useful, complementary functions: a recorder, a reminder, a source of ideas, a means of ensuring project continuity, and a way to communicate with yourself and within a project group. Neatness is not essential, but clarity and conformance to legal standards is critical. Other things that should be recorded: sources, questions, what doesn't work, things to try. A truly effective, comprehensive patent requires planning, team work and iteration: invite everyone to participate in finding ways around your patent claims or to break them or improve on them. A one page summary sheet of the important procedures and checkpoints should be included inside the front cover of every patent notebook issued.
