Alexander Graham Bell’s Path-breaking Patents

The image depicts a portrait of Alexander Graham Bell

  This post was first published on March 12th, 2014.   Have you ever imagined a world without communication? I am sure that the thought itself is horrible. Over the years, communication technologies have evolved to such an extent as to make the whole world shrink to the size of a portable communication device. Having said that, I think this is the right time to pay tribute to a legend who laid the foundation to the communication era: Alexander Graham Bell - the famous inventor who fetched the first telephone patent. Bell was born on the 3rd of March, 1847. Young Bell exhibited skills...

Electric Bulb – Inventions that Revolutionized the World

First Publication Date: 26th November 2010 Mankind moved from dark ages to the ages of candles, oil lanterns and gas lamps. But all these sources of light were a hazard to the user and property and were all dangerous in their own ways. The quest towards creating a better source of light brought about the advancement of the human race towards creating an electrified world. It was as early as 1809 when the foundation of the concept of the light bulb was formulated and the light bulb was invented. The light bulb has profoundly changed the human lifestyle by illuminating the...

Claiming with a Purpose, with the Blessings of the Inventor

This post was first published on March 1, 2010.   Claims draw the boundary to the invention that is being claimed. The boundary that is being drawn must be carefully done in order to ensure that the claims serve their purpose. The point here is that every claim must have a specific purpose and must be targeted to a potentially infringing product or process, or be targeted to protect a specific implementation (in case of defensive approach). In order for the practitioner to be able to do that, he must have a clear understanding of how a product or process is implemented...

How Can We Encourage Inventors to Invent?

This post was first published on February 7, 2010. In one of my earlier posts entitled, 'Why do inventors invent?', I provided the results of a study on inventor incentives carried out by us. It can be noted from the results that a very small percentage of the inventors expressed that financial incentives encourage them to invent. The learning from the study is that an incentive mechanism must include incentives other than financial in order to encourage inventors to invent. Having said that, the issue with respect to it is that incentives that encourage an inventor such as love of invention,...

Can You Invent for Patents? – BananaIP’s Inventor Program Highlights

The featured image shows the inventors and the BananaIP team involved in the Strategic inventor program.

Is it really possible for inventors to invent with the objective of acquiring patents? Dr. Kalyan Kankanala's research shows that patents are the least of their concern when inventors invent. What then was the purpose of the program on patents for inventors led by Dr. Kalyan last Friday? One of the inventors at the event said, "I did not learn how to invent, but I learned how to assess if my invention is patentable, how to think about patentable inventions, and how to handle patent risks? It was very helpful and enlightening, and I think I will trouble attorneys less, and hopefully, send...
