The form itself is part of a workflow that supports ideation, invention review, and eventual patent filing.
The form is structured around three platforms; 1) the Inventors Management; 2) the Content; and 3) the Workflow.
Entering Inventor Information
It’s important to include the first name, last name, email and residential addresses of each inventor to support the application filing. All of this information will be required by the Patent Office, so capturing it from the beginning will save time and effort later on.
While most counsel would request that Inventors to fill out each disclosure promptly, it is especially important for users looking to find related filings with the IPwe Analytics. The more complete the disclosure, the more reflective the automated landscape will be. The platform date stamps all submissions and updates, so some users may wish to compare IP Analytics results of multiple submission in advance of drafting a patent application.
