Are you far enough along with your idea to get a patent?

Read Full Post

Hi, I'm John Rizvi, the patent professor. A lot of inventors mistakenly believe that they need to have a working prototype of their invention in order to get a patent. This is not true at all, a prototype is not required. However, in order to get a patent, there are a number of questions that an inventor has to be able to answer. I have compiled a list of questions that help identify whether or not you are far enough along with your idea to even seek patent protection. If you have received these questions from me, they will be in a document entitled The invention disclosure worksheet. You should be able to complete this worksheet in about 15 minutes. Remember, this document is only viewed by me and my law firm and is protected by the attorney client privilege and confidentiality. Since it is an internal document, you do not have to worry about making it perfect. If I have any questions or need additional information from you, I will let you know. Also, one of the questions asks for a sketch, but nothing formal is needed. If you want to use a computer to do the sketch, that is fine. But a simple hand drawing with a pen on paper is really all that I need. The important thing is not to procrastinate. Give me your answers to the questions in the invention disclosure worksheet as soon as possible. And I will review and let you know if you have patentable subject matter. under US law, timing is everything. And the first person to file a patent owns the idea. Please do not delay in getting a description of your invention over to me to review for patentability. Signing off until next time, John Roos V. The patent Professor.
