How to read a patent in 60 seconds

For non-lawyers, trying to read a patent is like like fighting through dense jungle armed with a teaspoon. The rigid, formal prose seems designed to intimidate and confuse. Which is ironic because the original intention of the patenting system is that you are granted a temporary monopoly on the commercial benefits of your invention in return for disclosing it for the common good!

So when I bumped into “How to read a patent in 60 seconds” I found it a real breath of fresh air. Insightful, brief, and enjoyable.

Highly recommended if you have ever tried and failed to read a patent!

Of course, you should always seek legal advice etc.
