Plant Patenting services
A plant patent application seeks patent protection for new plant matter. A plant patent protects a plant that possesses new or unique characteristics (35 U.S.C. 161). We offer affordable plant patent services following our 5 steps to patent by a USPTO Registered Patent Practitioner. Plant Patent Services include provisional and non-provisional patent applications for plant inventions.
For example, an inventor could patent an asexually reproduced plant. There are, however, some plants that cannot be patented. Tuber-propagated plants, which are reproduced by the same part of the plant that is eaten, cannot be patented. Also, plant patents are issued for 20 years from the filing date, similar to utility patents.
