Randy Shen, a lawyer for Abbott Labs, gave a great session on intellectual property at this year's Silicon Valley Code Camp. His big advice for all entrepreneurs and developers is to watch out for public disclosure, because when you do "publicly disclose" your idea, you potentially ruin your patent rights in the U.S. and most definitely in the worldwide market.
Other issues entrepreneurs need to think about are "For sale" and "Public use." Once you start selling your product without a patent or make it available for public use, you really damage your ability to secure a patent.
Watch the video as Shen goes into detail on these "don'ts" and then offers up some advice on some "do's" for entrepreneurs wanting to protect their patents.
