Invention disclosure documents are the important first steps in the IP commercialization process. Not only does it represent the first recording of the invention, establishing the date and scope, but they have been used to defeat challenges to dates of invention, inventorship, invention scope, and prior art. If you improperly write your invention disclosure, it can result in a complete loss of your patent rights down the road. This highlights the importance of drafting an effective invention disclosure from the beginning.
