*Registered before the U.S. Patent Office
 atent Law, like no other aspect of law, is rife with popularly held misconceptions about many of its fundamental notions. This lack of understanding is attributable in part to the fact that patent law requires an intimate familiarity with basic concepts of physical science and acquaintance with abstruse technologies. But another, and perhaps more significant reason for these misunderstandings is the fact that patent law has been built up around a nucleus of highly sophisticated, abstract, and seemingly peculiar rules. For these reasons, the Patent and Trademark Office requires lawyers practicing before it to have technical or engineering degrees. This brochure will familiarize the reader with some of the basics of patent practice, and initially help to evaluate their needs. In securing a patent considerable time, expense, and uncertainty are saved by placing the case in the hands of a registered patent attorney.
