Patent Prosecution:

A patent is the exclusive right that is given to an applicant for an invention.  There are several different types of patents (i.e., Utility Patents, Design Patents and Plant Patents).  The process to obtaining a patent can take several years.  After the patent application has been filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) it will be reviewed by a Patent Examiner.  Once all obstacles (if any) are overcome by the applicant, the patent will be approved by the Examiner and a patent will issue.     

Advantages & Benefits of Patent:

The main advantages of a obtaining a patent – 

  • It helps prevent others from copying, manufacturing, selling or importing your invention without your permission.
  • Some businesses are able to collect royalties from a patent they have licensed to a third-party.
  • It gives the owner of the patent exclusive rights of the invention. 
  • It helps businesses find investors.

 Without a patent, inventions are not protected.
