What Does Patent Pending Mean?

Patent pending means that an application has been submitted to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). When you submit an application for a utility, design, or plant patent, the USPTO issues a patent pending serial number, which serves to alert competitors and the public that you are in the process of seeking a patent on your invention.

The patent pending status does not protect the invention, and you can't sue for infringement if someone copies your idea. You only get full legal protection on your idea once the USPTO approves the patent. So, once you receive approval for your patent application, you can take legal action against

What Is Trademark Protection?

Trademark protection refers to safeguarding intellectual property rights to protect a trademark from counterfeiting and infringement. A trademark is an established or legally registered mark that identifies a manufacturer's unique goods and services. The owner of a distinctive mark can apply to receive trademark protection. However, trademark protection also requires you to continually use the mark in commerce.

To protect your trademark from infringement and counterfeiting, you need to make sure your mark is not used by others, and you need to bring legal charges against those who use your mark without permission. By conducting research, you can develop a strong trademark or

Patent Pending Protection: What Is It?

Patent pending protection lets you warn other people that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) are considering granting you a patent on your invention. This warning will discourage other inventors from stealing or copying your invention. Once you receive a patent, you can try to get from people who copied your invention when the patent was still pending.

The moment an inventor talks about their invention in public, they have a year to take action. Here are some important things to know about the one year rule:

  • After you talk about your invention in public, you have exactly one year to file for a patent.
  • If you do not file within that year, you can no longer file for a patent in the future.
  • You can get around this rule by havin

What Does a Patent Do?

When asking "what does a patent do," remember that a patent gives the patent holder exclusive rights to an inventive process or product. The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) grants these rights to inventors who have created a new way of doing something or provided a technical solution to a problem.

To obtain a patent, an inventor must provide information about the invention in a patent application, which is then disclosed to the public. Once granted a patent, the patent owner can give permission to license the invention at his or her discretion. The owner can also sell the rights to the invention, transferring patent ownership to the buyer.

After granting your patent, the USPTO will send your patent issue in the mail. It will feature the USPTO seal and be signed by the Commissioner of Patents and Trademarks

How Much Does a Trademark Cost?

  • 1 min read

Trademark Costs Explained

A common question many attorneys get is: "how much does it cost to trademark a name?”

The first step to calculating what a trademark costs is going to be how much you are willing to pay an attorney to research if a similar trademark already exists or not? Because it takes time to properly research any existing or similar trademarks that may exist, if not, you may be wasting your time and money filing a trademark for something that has already been filed.

After factoring this cost, the Trademark Office will charge a government-filing fee of at least $225, if not more, depending on how many classes of goods/services are listed in the application. Each individual class of goods or services you file for means that the cost of the trademark will increase by at least $225
