How Much Does It Cost to Get a Patent on a Software Invention?

Read Full Post


00:05

How much does it cost to patent a software idea? So the first step before protecting software is to do a search to make sure that nobody else has your has already patented it. Because if somebody else owns your idea, then you're spinning your wheels, you're basically going to spend time and money reinventing the wheel. And the patent office is going to reject that because somebody else filed first. So the first step is to do that research or have a patent attorney do the research to make sure you're first the reason an attorney needs to do it is because says, based on link or nice, open words, you can very well miss the closest known ideas to your invention, can we is that when you start typing in terms on search engines, you are revealing your idea to others surgeons tracks search terms, and there is a lot of risks with doing searches online if you're typing in an SEO the idea. So so that first first cost, you're looking roughly at about $1,500 to protect the to do the research to make sure the idea is not protected. The good news is that 50% of those fees are credited at my firm towards the software patent itself. So if you go forward after the research, the search only cost $750 To find out if your idea is new or not. As far as the cost of the patent. It's it's all over the map. It depends on how complex your ID and the more complex the other patents that come up in our research that are close to yours, the more difficult it is for me to protect what you have the general range anywhere from about $4,000 up to 12,000 and even above for something that's really complex or if a lot of other similar ideas come forward.
