Frequently Asked Questions
For individuals and companies looking to patent their ideas in the St Paul area, here are typical questions our clients ask about patents, trademarks, copyrights and legal issues related to intellectual property.
Do I need a prototype?
You do not need a physical prototype. What is useful are design plans and descriptions of the idea.
Do I have a good idea?
This is a good question. After meeting with a patent attorney and having a completed patent search, your attorney will be able to make a recommendation on whether the idea can be patented.
How do I present my idea to a company?
If you are about to present your idea to a company, it is important to take specific steps to protect your intellectual property. This can be in the form of getting the client to agree to specific paperwork. Also, your attorney should be able to help assess what stage you may want to be in, like a patent pending, before you present your idea.
What should I expect in the patenting process?
You should expect in the patent process to go through a series of steps from a patent search through to an application. You should expect the patent attorney to have a technical understanding of your idea and the ability to translate this idea into a documented patent ready for the patent office.
Can I do the patent search myself?
Yes, you can do a patent search yourself, however, there is a lot more sophistication and complexity to a thorough patent search. Making a mistake and not identifying an existing patent can be a major problem. Your best decision, regardless of whether you use our firm is to use a professional in the patent search process.
