Wes Schwie on Being an Engineer

Posted by Isabel Fox | Oct 03, 2023 | 0 Comments

“People should have faith in their own brilliance” – this was one of the key takeaways from a recent episode of the Being an Engineer podcast, which featured our very own Wes Schwie as a guest. Wes and Aaron Moncur, the host of Being an Engineer, discussed various topics related to patents and patent law, including the following:

  • The origin of our firm name;
  • Some of the differences between a career as an engineer and a career in patent law;
  • Provisional patent applications and the importance of filing them as soon as possible;
  • Protecting against copycat products and how to deal with copycats when they arise;
  • The rights and protections granted by an issued patent;
  • What to look for in a patent attorney; and
  • The general range of costs for a patent application

If any of these topics are of interest, check out the link above to listen to the episode! You can also access the Being an Engineer podcast on a number of platforms, including our LinkedIn page, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Amazon Music, and Google Podcasts.

Be sure to listen to the end for one of Wes's favorite jokes!
