Craige Thompson (“The Examiner Whisperer”) on a Patent Strategy in the US for capturing Improvements of an Invention
Here is a phone interview with Craige Thompson from Austin, Texas.
Craige is a Patent Attorney since the year 2000, and before that, he worked as a professional engineer in electronics design.
Craige has written a very practical book, the “Patent Offense: 7 Steps to a Safe, Secure Patent Portfolio”. You can purchase it here.
