with Robert Wright of Private Label Law

Patents are usually a legal issue Amazon sellers run scared of rather than approaching as a tool in their own armoury. But there are some uses of patents that are both more affordable and more powerful than might first appear.

Forewarned is forearmed, as they say – listen to Robert’s reality check and, if you do decide to use patent protection,  you’ll be ahead of the competition.
