This is a free textbook that is offered by MIT OpenCourseWare. It is used in a course at MIT called Development of Inventions and Creative Ideas. According to the author, "To write an interdisciplinary book requires a mixture of interdisciplinary techniques, and so I have tried to interweave history, primaryprinciples, procedures, problems, and points of conflict into what I believe to be the true fabric pattern of the patent system,struggling tostay alive in a world of rapid change. Because of this somewhat unorthodox approach, I have summarized the scope of each chapter at its head,and,in som ecases,the reason for the approach used in order that the reader may better understand my mode or presentation."
