File Early, File Often, and Other Intellectual Property Advice

David DykemanMD+DI has three new features dedicated to intellectual property. The first new feature is the first in a series on the impact of patent reform on medical device entrepreneurs. The first installment, titled "What Medtech Entrepreneurs Need to Know about Patent Reform," is a question and answer session with David Dykeman (pictured on the right), patent attorney and co-chair of the IP department at Greenberg Traurig LLP. The second installment is titled "What You Should Know about Patent Reform: The Post-Grant Review Process."

A second feature, titled "How To Develop A Strong Patent Portfolio," explains the importance of monitoring competitors' IP. 

The final new feature is named "Device Patents: Think Globally, File Locally," which focuses on the differences between the U.S. patent system and the rest of the world, some of which will persist after patent reform goes into affect.
