FAQ by Startups and Small Businesses about Patenting
Here are some frequently asked questions (FAQs) that startups and small businesses may have about inventing and patent filing:
To be eligible for a patent, an invention must be new, non-obvious, and fully and clearly described in the patent application. It must also be useful and capable of being made or used in some way.
A patent search involves searching various databases, such as the US Patent and Trademark Office’s database, to identify any existing patents or published patent applications that are similar to your invention. This can help you understand the landscape of existing IP rights and determine whether your invention is eligible for a patent.
To draft and file a patent application, you’ll need to prepare a detailed description of your invention, including how it works and how it is used. You’ll also need to identify the specific type of patent you are seeking (e.g., utility patent, design patent, etc.) and pay the necessary fees. The process can be complex and it is advisable to seek the help of a patent professional.
The patent process can be lengthy, with an average timeline of about 2-4 years from the date of filing to the grant of a patent. There are various factors that can affect the timeline, including the complexity of the invention and the workload of the patent office. There are options to expedite the process though.
The cost of obtaining a patent can vary widely depending on a variety of factors, including the type of patent you are seeking, the complexity of the invention, and the fees associated with the patent office. In general, you can expect to pay several thousand dollars in fees and expenses related to drafting, filing, and prosecuting a patent application. The total expenses can be reduced significantly with outsourcing of the work to a patent company such as Maxinov Solutions Pvt. Ltd. Who are specialised in delivering the services ate reasonable rates.
While it is possible to file a patent application on your own, it is generally recommended to seek the help of a patent attorney or professional. The patent process can be complex and making mistakes can be costly. This can lead to causing your invention to become non-patentable or losing all the patent rights or getting weak coverage of the rights. A patent professional can help ensure that your application is properly prepared and filed, and can provide guidance throughout the process.
If you believe that your patent rights are being infringed upon, you have the option to file a lawsuit in federal court to seek damages and other remedies. However, the process of enforcing patent rights can be complex and costly, and it is advisable to seek the help of a patent attorney or professional.
