Patentability is a combination of two elements. First, it is a determination as to whether an idea or invention meets the criteria to be patentable. Second, it is a determination whether it exists in the prior art, conflicts with another invention or idea, or is obvious to try a person having ordinary skill in the art. Contact Carson Patents to get started.
What is Patentable?
In order to be patent eligible subject matter (read more at USPTO) an invention must be a process, machine, manufacture, or composition of matter. And, it cannot be within an exception recognized by the courts; laws of nature, physical phenomena, and abstract ideas. If an invention meets these criteria, and, it is new, useful, not obvious, and well-described, then, it may be patentable. A professional prior art search is needed to determine what is prior art. The prior art is used to evaluate an invention against these eligibility criteria. At Carson Patents we provide a patentability evaluation with our prior art search patent service. And, we offer clearance, and freedom to operate studies. Contact us to start the steps to patent for your invention.
What is Prior Art?
Prior art is all information available to the public in any form before your date of invention that might be relevant to claims of originality. Any similar disclosure to a patent claim may prevent the claim from being allowed. The prior art is any patent, patent application, or non-patent literature that discloses an idea or invention. At Carson Patents, our prior art search finds the prior art and evaluates patentability. Contact us to start the steps to patent for your invention.
What does “Art” mean?
The art an invention belongs to is the technological area to which the invention pertains, or with which it is most nearly connected. What the invention is determines the art. The technological area(s) an invention is classified into for examination and indexing are frequently similar sounding. For example, if an inventions classification included words like toys and games, the art would be “making toys and games.”
The “Art” matters because the description from a patent application must enable a person, having ordinary skill in that art, to make and use the invention. So, if the invention were a new toy, a person having ordinary skill in the art of making toys and games would need to be able to make and use the invention from the description submitted with patent application.

What is patented?
A patent is the legal right to control the making, using, and selling of the invention for the length of the patent. Patented means that the patent office examined the patent application found some claim(s) allowable. Allowed claims are sent a notice of allowance, and an offer to pay a patent issue fee. Once the issue fee is paid, the patent issues. The allowed claim(s) described in the issued patent are patented. Patent protection offers legal rights to control making, using, and selling for the duration of the patent, in the country or regions where it is issued. Carson Patents offers patent prosecution patent services to help get claims patented. Contact us to start the steps to patent for your invention.
