Protect Your Invention – Patent Law

Patent Law

    • Have you ever had one of those million dollar ideas, but you don’t know what to do with it?  It can be a scary process bringing your invention to the world.  Copycats are ever ready to take advantage of any idea that is not properly protected.  Luckily, we’re here to help.  Your invention deserves to be experienced by consumers the way you want it be experienced.  Key to this is developing a strong and applicable patent.

Many inventors understand the need for a patent, but few understand the different options available.  We want to help you understand which of these patents makes your dream become everyone else’s reality:

  1. Utility Patents – A utility patent is the most common type of patent people apply. Utility patents focus on covering processes, compositions of matter, machines, and manufactures.  If you have invented a new product, chances are you are looking for a utility patent.  A utility patent covers the overall structure and function of the invention –– insuring that no one will change or copy your product.
  2. Design Patents – A design patent protects an object’s appearance.  It does not protect the structure and function of the object.  Because of this, people often apply for both a design and utility patent together.
  3. Plant Patents – A plant patent is used to protect new and unique plants.  Protecting these unique characteristics of the newly developed plants insures the plants safety from being sold by competitors.

As inventors, you create a special experience for the consumer when you properly protect your invention with the necessary patent.  Let us help you obtain a patent that will allow your hard work to create a special experience for others.
