Pete’s Technology, Search & Patent Blog

These articles are intended to reflect the knowledge, experience and wisdom I have gained as an independent inventor who has searched the internet for technology and legal information for the last 25 years. I am the sole inventor of seven US patents, many filed before the web browser was invented. I write from the perspective of an inventor and businessman who was a plaintiff in seven US Patent litigations from 2004 to 2014, As a result, I have licensed my technology to 18 US Telecommunications manufacturers.

I am not a lawyer and these blogs do not give legal advice. These articles do offer my personal perspective on various technology, patent and legal search issues.
