There are two critical ways Patent Law impacts online merchants:

  1. Making sure you protect your unique products and intellectual property (IP)
  2. Making sure you don’t infringe on someone else’s patents

My guest for this episode is Patent Attorney, Rich Goldstein. Rich is a wealth of knowledge on patent law and has carved out a niche in the eCommerce space. I am NOT a legal expert, to say the least, so I was really excited to dive into this topic and learn more myself.
