Three Options Inventors Can Choose to File for a Patent

Read Full Post


After you develop your idea, you have three different options that you can choose from in deciding how to go forward. First, you can conduct a patent search and file for the patent application yourself. Second, select an invention service company to bring your idea to market. Or third, look for a registered patent attorney to conduct the patent search and write your patent application. The first option you have is doing your patent search and filing your patent application with the United States Patent Office. Now conducting a patent search and filing the application yourself is a time consuming task. This option can sound like a good idea, because no one else knows more about your invention than you do. But you can make mistakes that limit how effective your invention is. Also, Google Keyword searches are a common search tool that inventors use to conduct the search themselves. But that focuses on one specific word. The problem is that it eliminates other keywords that are similar to your invention. For example, let's say that you decide to do a keyword search for the word pipe when you don't include similar words like conduit or tube in your search. you exclude relevant patents that resemble your invention. Relevant patents prove that your idea is novel from other products in the marketplace. The second option that you have is an invention promotion company. And this is strongly discouraged by the patent office. Invention, companies are not able to help you patent your idea. They're not licensed and the vast majority of them have been found to be fraudulent. In fact, the patent office has put out a special brochure to help inventors identify companies that may be scams. Be very cautious of invention service companies that offer legal advice regarding patenting trademarking or copywriting your idea, do your research to assure that an invention service provider can fully deliver the service that you're inquiring to complete. And the third option is finding a registered patent attorney that can conduct a thorough patent search and draft a patent application that will have the best chance of being granted and will be broad enough to prevent competitors from designing around your idea. By making insignificant changes to your invention. A registered patent attorney licensed by the United States Patent Office can save you time and prevent mistakes that result in your patent getting denied or not providing you with enough protection. You should have your patent attorney conduct a patent search through an actual Patent Classification system instead of a keyword search. And this will check your idea against the 10 million plus granted patents. Unlike a Google Keyword search, this database of classifications is highly accurate and allows your patent attorney to review the most relevant patents similar to your invention. And then this way, he can help you distinguish your idea in the patent application draft. Filing for a patent is the first step to make sure that your invention is protected. Without a patent. Anyone can infringe on your idea. That's why seeking a patent attorney is the best option so that you can move forward with licensing or selling your idea knowing that you're fully protected legally.
