Invention Documentation.

Inventors Mateo and Jennifer finally meet their IP mentor in Episode 4 of my video series “How An Ordinary Inventor Can Turn Into A Millionaire (The Hero’s Journey)” (which is available ONLY on YouTube)!

They learn something that’s really important for any inventor out there: how to document properly. 

A lot of people make the mistake of not doing this or doing it wrong, so in this newsletter (and the YouTube video) I’m going to show you what you need to do and why it’s so important. 

Plus, at the end I’ll tell you how you can get a free template so you can start documenting your invention today!

Why You Need to Document Your Invention

Documenting is important because it proves that you are the rightful owner of the intellectual property. Without documentation, it would be very difficult to prove that you are the inventor in the event that someone else tries to claim your invention as their own. Further, if you ever decide to license or sell your invention, good documentation will make the process much easier. Lastly, if you ever need to enforce your rights in court, detailed documentation will be extremely helpful to your case. 

How to Document Your Invention Properly

There are a few key things that should be included in every invention disclosure document. As I told Mateo and Jennifer, documenting your invention is not just writing down your idea.  Although of course that’s an important part of it.  

When you document your invention, you should include:

  • A detailed description
  • Drawings and flowcharts
  • Known prior art
  • Advantages over the prior art
  • Surprising Results
  • Business Importance
  • Any external people you’ve told about it
  • And last but not least, who the inventors are

With the right documentation in place, just like Mateo and Jennifer, you can move forward with confidence.
