Escape the patent pit

Getting a patent for a new invention can be a long and daunting process. That’s why we created Patent Pit: a reality TV-style game that helps explain what makes a good invention.

This interactive feature requires the latest version of the flash player. If you are unsure whether you have this, the latest free version can be downloaded from the Adobe website.

Enter the pit!
