The Anatomy of A Patent | Parts of A Patent Application Explained

Read Full Post


A patent can be an unfamiliar document, especially if you've never seen one before. Many people imagine it as a fill in the blank document. And perhaps this is because it's called an application. This gives the impression that you simply fill in blanks on a form, similar to a job application. However, a patent is more like a book with several different chapters that tell the story about your invention. To start, the front page is not where you will find details about your invention. It's merely an introduction. When you turn to the first page of a book, you'll find information such as the Books Publishing Company for a patent. The front page includes the title, inventor, abstract, and a drawing that summarizes your invention. After you flip past the front page, you'll find figures of your invention with numbers next to each part. The numbers next to the illustrations, explain how your invention functions, and what each part does. That detailed explanation will be on another page, the field of invention, background and detailed description are the parts of the patent that specify your invention. Here you can find mentions of similar inventions that may be out on the market, and how your idea differs from them. This section will also reference those significant numbers that describe each part of your invention in detail. Finally, the claims are the end of a patent, and they determine the scope of protection provided. It is the claims of a patent that tell competitors how close they can come to your idea without infringing your rights. As you can see, patents are complex documents with pages upon pages of drawings and details describing your invention, which is why I always recommend hiring a patent attorney with years of practice and experience to draft a patent application for you. If you want the best protection possible. You can call my office to schedule a free discovery call at 1877 patent professor so that we can help you obtain a bulletproof patent.
