PowerPatent Hosts Free Webinar for Independent Inventors: How Computerized Tools Can Help Inventors Handle Upcoming Revisions to Americas Patent Laws

Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) September 19, 2012

PowerPatent, the company that empowers entrepreneurs and innovators to protect their intellectual property, is hosting a free webinar for inventors and entrepreneurs who are considering ways to cost-effectively patent their intellectual property.

Titled The AIA First-To-File Law: How Computerized Tools Can Help Inventors Handle Upcoming Revisions to Americas Patent Laws, the webinar is a great opportunity to learn how important revisions to the America Invents Act (AIA) will change how and when inventors should file their patents. The webinar will also discuss patent search techniques and software that can help inventors quickly prepare high quality provisional applications for their inventions.

Under the AIA, the United States is changing from a first to invent patent system to a first inventor to file patent system. This change in filing will take effect in March 2013, and has implications that will require inventors and businesses to update their patent development and filing strategies.

Webinar details

Over the course of one hour, nationally known patent attorney Bao Tran and Mark Reyland, executive director of the UIA, will examine the new law and assess what steps entrepreneurs should take to ensure their patent strategy maximizes protection of their ideas. For an inventors perspective, Dr. Phi Nguyen of MIBA Medical Inc. will share what he learned to cost-effectively develop a robust IP portfolio for his start-up company.

Some of the items well cover:

1. First to invent vs. first inventor to file: whats the difference in practical terms?

2. What is rules development and what is the official position of the USPTO in that process?

3. Best practices for using inventor notebooks in light of the new law.

4. Tips to determine which patents to file and the best way to file them using free search tools.

5. How technology can reduce the cost of writing and filing provisional patent applications.

New Free Guidebook Educates Homeowners How To Survive A Home Remodel

Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) August 15, 2012

HartmanBaldwin is releasing the third edition of its popular Home Remodelers Survival Guide. First published in 2003, the new publication takes a more strategic approach to shaping the readers remodeling goals by helping them make informed decisions before hiring an architect and contractor. This guidebook answers difficult remodeling questions, provides tools to help shape your goals and manage the process, and shows effective ways to recruit, select, and communicate with a design/build team.

From this guidebook a lecture series was born that ultimately resulted in the creation of the Home Remodelers Survival Guide Workshop. Now in its 9th year, this interactive workshop helps homeowners identify and get passed the fears that have held them back from realizing their remodeling goals. Fun and enlightening exercises help attendees (especially couples) prioritize a wants-and-needs list and also learn how to balance their scope with the budget to avoid over investing for their neighborhood.

Workshop leader, Bill Judson is an Architect at HartmanBaldwin Design/Build and heads HartmanBaldwins consulting team. He and his team of design/build consultants are grounded with the practical know-how necessary to provide innovative solutions to the toughest remodeling dilemmas.

People don’t plan to fail, but they often fail to plan. This is especially true where home remodeling is concerned, explains Bill Judson. Since remodeling is a complex process with many details to be planned, coordinated, and anticipated, even before the first nail is driven, homeowners are faced with several important decisions: Will the design project meet my family’s needs? How can I hold everyone to my budget? What compromises will I have to make? How do I protect myself and my investment? This one of a kind guidebook and workshop offers the chance to address these issues and help attendees obtain a clearer vision of how they can successfully manage a remodel of their own home.

To receive a FREE copy of The Home Remodelers Survival Guide call 626.486.0510. To register for an upcoming workshop online visit http://hartmanbaldwin.com/sgw-registration.asp Seating is limited; workshop fills up fast. People are encouraged to rsvp early.

Electronic Cigarette Hub Releases Free E Cigarette Trial Kit That Helps New York Woman Quit Smoking

(PRWEB) June 18, 2012

E cigarettes have been reported as an effective smoking cessation tool by many smokers. http://electroniccigarettehub.org talked to an electric cigarette user from New York who finally tried e cig because of the free trial kit offer from Electronic Cigarette Hub.

Megan Dawn, a service worker from New York said: I had dreamed about quiting smoking for a long time. About a year ago I read about electronic cigarettes. They seemed a bit expensive so I postponed the buying decision several times. Then I heard about the free trial offer from Ecig Hub and immediately ordered a trial starter kit. Now, a month later, I love smokeless cigarettes. My son and I both breathe better and Im coughing no more. Now when theres no constant stink, my senses are back. I had no idea I had really desensitized them. I feel better and I don’t get light headed or short-of-breath like I did before.

I thank ecig for giving me new options and for saving my son from 2nd hand smoke. Vapor cigarettes helped me kick the nasty habit of smoking. Im thankful for the electronic cigarette industry for coming up with a better and safer smoking alternative.

An electronic cigarette, or e-cigarette, is an electrical device that simulates the act of tobacco smoking by producing an inhaled vapor bearing the physical sensation, appearance, and often the flavor (with or without nicotine content) of inhaled tobacco smoke, without its odor or, ostensibly, its health risks.

E cig uses heat to vaporize a propylene glycol- or glycerin-based liquid solution into an aerosol mist, similar to the way a nebulizer or humidifier vaporizes solutions for inhalation.

The device’s components usually include a small liquid reservoir, a heating element, and a power source, which may be a battery or a wired USB adapter.

Most electronic cigarettes are portable, self-contained cylindrical devices in varying sizes, and many are designed to outwardly resemble traditional cigarettes.

Most are also reusable, with replaceable and refillable components, though some models are disposable. Liquids that produce vapor for electronic cigarettes are available in many different flavor varieties and nicotine concentrations, including nicotine-free versions.

Go to http://electroniccigarettehub.org to reserve your electronic cigarette free trial kit and read the best electronic cigarette review. If you want to buy electronic cigarette, now you can try it before you make the final decision by reading electronic cigarette reviews on site.
