Client gets patent – and cover of the local newspaper

by John Roberts on September 14, 2015

Roberts IP Law client Brian Irwin recently obtained a utility patent. In fact, Roberts IP Law staff hand-delivered the newly-issued patent to him today at his place of employment, Northside Middle School in Columbus, Indiana. This timing worked well because the story of how he patented his invention was published* in the local newspaper today:

Congratulations Brian!

*Note – the article had one error worth mentioning: utility patents last for up to 20 years from their filing or priority date, not from their date of issuance.
