Since Morning Bull got a national perspective on turning inventions into success with Shark Tank’s Barbara Corcoran earlier this week, they felt they needed a more local perspective on the process of taking an idea to the patent office, the manufacturing plant, and eventually to market.
In comes western New York power patent attorney Vincent LoTempio, who helped the selfie stick patented in the U.S. Patent Office. He shares some secrets to getting your product actually patented, and how it’s not some guarantee of success.
In spirit of @MorningBull97‘s chat w/#SharkTank star @BarbaraCorcoran, next up is Vincent LoTempio, a WNY patent lawyer. His clients include the selfie stick inventor, the “balance buddy” bicycle trainer, and lots more! #Buffalo #WNY #SharkWeek pic.twitter.com/kBs1NcbkgD

Be sure to stick with this convo until the end, when Vincent explains a hilarious story of the last time he happened to visit Rob’s Comedy Playhouse, and how he had a very awkward exchange with the comic headlining that night.
