Patent Applications Attorney
Securing a patent is crucial when you need to safeguard your intellectual property. Both large corporations and small businesses seek patent protection to prevent reverse engineering and gain a competitive edge in their industry. A patent provides exclusive ownership rights for a specific duration, which can vary according to the type of invention.
If you possess a valuable and innovative product, obtaining a patent is essential to safeguard your idea. However, the patent application process can be complex, and working with an intellectual property attorney to guide your business is essential. At BOAG Law, our patent attorneys can help you obtain a patent to protect your legal rights.
What Is a Patent?
A patent gives the inventor exclusive rights to prevent others from manufacturing, selling, or using their invention for a set period of time. Congress can grant patents according to the U.S. Constitution, and the federal government has statutes and rules that govern these patents.
When an application for an invention meets specific statutory criteria, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) will grant a patent. You can apply for three types of patents:
- Design patents
- Plant patents
- Utility patents
An invention must be “non-obvious” and “novel” to be eligible for a patent. An invention is considered “novel” if it differs from existing designs in one or more components and has not been publicly used, sold, or patented by anyone else within the last year.
The Patent Application Process
The process of applying for a patent is complex, and any misstep can delay the approval of the application. You must take several steps to get approval from the USPTO, from showing how your invention is unique to responding to requests for more information. These applications often require plenty of research to ensure you are filing for the right patent class.
Making a mistake could mean losing time and money, as you may have to go through the entire application process again. If you want to ensure your patent application adheres to all the requirements from the USPTO, reach out to the skilled intellectual law firm of BOAG Law.
