Why Should I Obtain A Patent?

A patent for an invention is the grant of a property right to the inventor, issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Generally, the term of a new patent is 20 years from the date on which the application for the patent was filed in the United States or, in special cases, from the date an earlier related application was filed, subject to the payment of maintenance fees. U.S. patent grants are effective only within the United States, U.S. territories, and U.S. possessions. Under certain circumstances, patent term extensions or adjustments may be available.

The right conferred by the patent grant is, in the language of the statute and of the grant itself, “the right to exclude others from making, using, offering for sale, or selling” the invention in the United States or “importing” the invention into the United States. What is granted is not the right to make, use, offer for sale, sell or import, but the right to exclude others from making, using, offering for sale, selling or importing the invention. Once a patent is issued, the patentee must enforce the patent without aid of the USPTO.

There are three types of patents:

Utility patents

may be granted to anyone who invents or discovers any new and useful process, machine, article of manufacture, or composition of matter, or any new and useful improvement thereof;

Design Patents

May be granted to anyone who invents a new, original, and ornamental design for an article of manufacture.

Plant Patents

May be granted to anyone who invents or discovers and asexually reproduces any distinct and new variety of plant.

Patent Eligibility Analysis & Report (PEAR)

This is for those inventors that need to know: Is it even possible to patent what I’ve invented? Our Bold Patents Patent attorneys will conduct a detailed consultation in which a client’s invention is disclosed, then, they will gather important functional and aesthetic information about the invention to discern whether, under Section 35 USC 101, the invention is eligible for patenting. The legal analysis and report will be limited to eligibility and will not cover novelty, obviousness or utility, as that is a patentability search, analysis and opinion, which requires extensive searching and detailed analysis. The PEAR is FREE with your initial consultation with Bold Patents. If you would like a more detailed search and analysis, please see Patentability Search & Opinion.
