Patent Filing Services
Patent filing is the process of submitting a patent application to a government agency in order to acquire legal protection for innovation. The patent application typically involves a thorough description of the invention, drawings or diagrams that represent the invention, and claims that describe the scope of the invention.
- The process of submitting a patent application to the relevant government agency (such as the USPTO) to secure exclusive rights to an invention is known as patent filing.
- A patent grants the inventor the right to prevent others from making, using, selling, or importing the invention for a set period of time (usually 20 years from the filing date for a utility patent).
- Typically, the patent filing procedure includes preparing and submitting a detailed patent application that describes the invention and its distinguishing features.
- A patent examiner reviews the application and determines whether the invention meets the requirements for a patent.
- If the application is approved, the inventor is granted a patent, which protects their invention legally.
Different types of Patent Filings…
Provisional patent application
A provisional patent application is a short-term filing that provides an invention an early priority date and allows the inventor to use the phrase “patent pending” for up to a year while working on a more comprehensive application.
Non-provisional (utility) patent application
This is the traditional approach for obtaining a utility patent, which covers new and useful gadgets, tools, manufactured commodities, and material compositions.
Design patent application
An application for a design patent covers unique, distinctive, and ornamental designs for manufactured goods.
International patent application (PCT)
An inventor can use this application to submit a single application to a single patent office in order to request patent protection in numerous countries.
Continuation patent application
A continuation patent application is one that is submitted by the same inventor(s) as an earlier application and safeguards priority to the filing date of the earlier application.
Divisional patent application
A divisional patent application is filed when a previously submitted application consists of multiple inventions and the inventor(s) wish to pursue one or more of those ideas independently.
Continuation-in-part (CIP) patent application
When the inventor(s) want to supplement a previously submitted application with new material, they file a continuation-in-part (CIP) patent application. The CIP application includes both the new material and the previously filed content.
