How to Best Apply for your Patent in 4 Easy Steps
Step 1: Check for Prior Art.
Be sure you know what else is out there in the world like your idea or invention. You should always start with a professional Prior Art Search (keyword and classification at a minimum). This will inform you about the products, inventions, and research that are similar to your invention or idea. It offers you great insight into novelty and patentability. Further, it helps you know what to address when writing the patent application’s description and claims sections in particular. We also offer Patentability and Infringement Studies that can include prior art searching. These studies analyze the claims of patents and patent applications.
Step 2: Write the best description (specification) that you can.
Patent Application Writing is next. Once you know what you are likely to be facing as prior art you can write a good patent application. Good searching enhances application writing, and can reduce or eliminate potential rejections and objections, saving you money. A quality search will make all the difference in writing an application.
Step 3: File the patent application.
After prior art searching and the claim patentability study has lead to a great application description, claims, and drawings (if needed), it is time to file the application. We provide Patent Application Filing, and can file an application ready to file, right now, if needed (we are available for clients 24 hours a day). We can file any type of patent application. Provisional or Non-Provisional. Utility, Design, or Plant. US only or International (PCT, Hague).
Step 4: Prosecute the patent application.
The final step is Patent Prosecution. While it does happen that an application is submitted and the first office action is a notice of allowance, this is not at all usual. Usually the USPTO will have a few things to say about even the best prepared applications. The reason is simple, they examine each and every detail to be sure that it is patentable, and, if it is, they require the application to clearly and accurately communicate what the patentable invention is and exactly how to make and use it. The USPTO has a fully disclosed process and procedure for examining patent applications. You can represent yourself, however, we highly recommend professional patent practitioner help. Contact Us.
