How can I get the word out about my patent?

Episode 1006 (41:25)

Steve from LaHabra, CA

Steve wants to know if there's a place tech writers can gather online to publish information about a patent. Leo says the short answer is no, but he does recommend PRNewswire.com, but it isn't cheap. There's also social media.

Leo says that tech writers aren't really going to write about a patent because most patents are trivial. And with patent trolls, it's too risky because most are non-practicing entities that have no intention of making the device the patent was granted for. Even major companies are being litigious over it.
