If you were listening to Annie Othen from BBC Coventry & Warwickshire radio shortly before lunch on Friday 24th September 2010 you may have heard Patent & Trade Mark Attorney Tim Blower having fun fielding fictional 'just for fun' invention ideas on Annie's show. The question uppermost in everyones' mind was:
'Is my idea patentable?'
However, the answers were definately not one-size-fits-all. Each answer - tailored to the specific invention idea - raised new aspects of the patent system.
The excuse for this high-jinx was, of course, Coventry's "Festival of Invention & Design".
Annie Othen's Invention . . . Lives On?
Tim re-appeared on BBC Radio Coventry & Warwickshire on Thursday 14th October 2010, keeping Annie on the straight and narrow as she pursued her idea for a new invention!
