Discovering Three Options Inventors Have to Get Ideas to Market

Read Full Post


You can choose different options. To move forward with your idea and get it into the marketplace. You want to make sure that you decide on the right choice to protect your idea, so that you can confidently so your product, knowing that no one else can infringe on it. Here are the options that you have and the differences between each one. Now suppose you decide to conduct your own patent search and draft a patent application. One of the cons were doing it yourself is that most inventors will try to conduct a search for relevant patents through a Google search. using search engines is risky, because you may unintentionally give away your idea to companies that search search engine optimization. Another disadvantage is that search engines can limit relevant patents that are similar to your idea. For example, let's say your idea was a glow in the dark chi. There are other alternative words that can be used to describe a glow in the dark sky, like a luminous flying toy, or light up children toy. The search engine will miss these key words and you will not be able to prove that your invention is original in a patent application. The US Patent Office offers courses and seminars that teach you how to search by classifications, and this is the right way to search instead of keywords. Searching by classifications is very complex. But if you invest the time, it is a skill that can be learned. Now the difference between doing it yourself and finding an invention promotion company is that you have others helping you. But you may not have the right person or entity to help you protect your idea before it is out in the market. Invention service companies are not registered patent attorneys, and they do not offer patent trademark or copyright services. Keep in mind that before you sell and license your product, you need to own it. And you do that by filing a patent to protect your idea and to keep it from competitors. Once it's on the market, you leave your product vulnerable to competitors. Many invention promotion companies have not been able to deliver on the services that the inventors were seeking as a result of their fraudulent activities. The FTC has filed lawsuits against some of these companies. Unfortunately, the patent office cannot investigate complaints against invention promotion companies. And these companies are constantly changing their names and opening up in different states under a different name. So the patent office has put out a brochure to help inventors identify the warning signs of a scam. Now unlike invention promotion companies, registered patent attorneys have the credentials and are licensed to help you legally protect your idea. registered patent attorneys comply with the state bar as well as the federal United States Patent Bar, which is national. Therefore they can advise you nationwide on the best type of patents and can conduct a patent search to help determine if you should even proceed with your idea. Now seeking a patent attorney will save you more time compared to doing it yourself. And attorney will be able to conduct a patent search and draft a patent application accurately and accuracy saves time in the patent process so that you don't have to go back and fix errors. Remember, timing is critical for patenting your idea because of the first to file rule established back in 2013. A patent attorney will also be able to save you time and draft a patent that successfully protects your invention and gives you broad rights.
