In this episode…

How do inventors see their products? Usually, as the newest, best, and most unique product or software to have ever been created. Behind this is typically the mentality that a similar product does not exist, so if a simple Google search does not show similar items, it’s the jackpot.

Having performed thousands of patent searches over the years, David B. Goldstein knows the advantages of hiring a professional. He approaches every search with the mentality that the product already exists—so tries to find it. This helps ensure that he does a thorough enough search to avoid having a client accidentally infringe on other existing patents.

In this week’s episode of the Innovations and Breakthroughs Podcast, Rich Goldstein is joined by his brother David B. Goldstein, a management consultant and author, to discuss the benefits of being creative and developing one’s artistic talents. They also talk about why you should avoid using Google for your patent searches, David’s book and his artwork, and their experience growing up together.
