WHAT IS A PATENT?
A utility patent application includes a written description of the invention, a series of black and white drawings, and a set of claims.
Provisional applications, a less formal type of patent application, may be filed before a utility application, but then must be converted into a utility application within 12 months. Utility applications are the most common type of patent application and this is where you define your invention in the form of claims. It is the claims of a utility patent that prevent your invention from being practiced by others.
WHO NEEDS A PATENT?
Patents provide you with the right to stop others from copying your patented products or processes and allow you to collect damages from any unauthorized use of your patented product or process. We help you create a diversified patent portfolio that is strategically built around a particular product or technology, and that provides protection on a corresponding number of levels.
