What are patent claims?

A patent application can take hours to put together. You want it to be thorough, but, more importantly, if it is approved, you want it to protect your invention.

What value does an attorney bring to my patent application?

In some ways, it seems as though people have come full circle. We started out trying to do everything ourselves, then came an age of specialization. If you wanted something done, you asked someone who trained in it. Now, in an age where the answers are more accessible than ever, many people are tempted to do for themselves, what they would have left to a professional 50 years ago.

What is the Track One program?

Researching and developing a new idea can be a long journey, but at least it can feel like a productive one. The process of waiting for the patent process can feel more like a waiting game since most patents take one to two years until they are licensed.

Do I need a provisional patent?

For any inventor who has considered filing for a patent, it is no surprise that the process is a long one. A patent will take over a year, and often will take two or more years. While there is a “fast track” application, you can still expect the process to take one to two years.

When can I label my product as “patent pending?”

Before creating your concept, you may have dismissed messages on other products that said, “patent pending.” Now that you have your own idea that needs protection, those words seem like they have the potential to add a layer of protection while your patent is processing.

What if someone wants to buy my patent?

The opportunity to sell a patent for a great price is something many inventors dream about. While many aspire to have a patent that does well in the marketplace, others dream of a day when they can leave the work to someone else.
