Patent Registration in the USA

Do you have a unique idea that can bring about significant change in human life? Or maybe you have burnt an endless volume of midnight oil to create an original idea that makes an existing process less complicated? And now, you are hoping to license it to potential buyers or establish your own business to market the invention.

Patent your invention before anyone else

Before you go public with your invention, it would be a good idea to apply for patent registration in the USA to prevent someone else from reaping the benefits of your hard work. Because, it doesn’t matter who had the idea first; the US works on a “first to file” process, to determine who earns US patent registration.

The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issues patents to unique and valuable inventions by granting a monopoly over the invention for a stipulated period. Here, a monopoly means that the inventors can protect their rights of making, using, selling, and attempting to sell the patented invention within the USA.

IPExcel, we have a team that knows the US patent filing procedure in-depth and can guide you in an appropriate way

How to file your patent?

To get your invention approved by the US Patent Office, you need to follow the guidelines of the Patent Act (35 U.S. Code). Filing a patent is a lengthy and complex process. It demands thorough research regarding the patentability of the invention, determining the patent type, preparing and filing the patent application, following up with the examination process, and maintaining the patent granted until the term expires. Earning an issued patent will typically grant you a 20-year monopoly from the application date, wherein no one can earn profits from your invention, without your express permission.

A reputed firm of patent attorneys and specialists like IPExcel can help you with the process of patent registration in the USA. Our team has in-depth knowledge of the prevalent US patent system, and have demonstrated experience in offering US patent registration services.

Determine the type of patent your invention needs

The US patent process typically receives two types of patent applications:

  • Utility patents cover the workings of an invention, including the structure and functionality (“how it works").
  • Design patents cover the ornamental design features and apply to the uniqueness of the design of a specific item (“how it looks”).

Once you have decided which of the above patent type suit your invention best, you can proceed to the next step.

First to file prevails
