This article, written by Vic Lin and entitled, "What Good is a Patent if you Can't Enforce It?," explains just how important patents are to not only protecting the idea, but adding value to the invention. Overall, the article speaks about all of the benefits an individual or a company may receive as a result of obtaining a patent. What it does not speak of is the role patent illustrations play. The illustrations help visually explain the complexity of an invention and make the patent more approachable to the average viewer. So, it should go without saying that a successful patent should include top notch patent illustrations from an experienced provider. Think about this while considering obtaining a patent for your invention!
