Understanding patent basics is critical for a technology start-up.  What does a patent protect? Is my idea/software patentable and worth patenting?  How long will it take to get a patent? When is my patent infringed? Did I infringe a competitor’s patent? These questions sound simple enough, but the answers are not.
