Patents Made Simple by New Website

Written by Jody Tsigarides on 06 August 2007

« Return to Reading Room

A new website has been set up allowing the public to rewrite Patent’s in layperson’s terms.

The website www.wikipatents.com allows users to ‘translate’ the technical jargon used in a Patent application. It also allows users to vote on the merits of the Patent and rate its technical accuracy.

The public can also comment on the ‘Prior Art’ which they feel is applicable to the Patent.

This new site can only be applauded. Any median which encourages or in facts simplifies intellectual property and which engages individuals in the subject can only be a positive thing.

The bottom line is this: Intellectual Property is arguably the most important assets to a company, to industry and the economy, therefore the more information available the better.
