Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Asheville Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Asheville patent attorneys & lawyers represent individuals and businesses throughout the world with domestic and foreign patent preparation and prosecution matters. They have extensive experience handling applications from nearly every sector of technology, including biotechnology, computer hardware and software, communication networks, internet systems and methods, automotive, medical equipment, construction technology, consumer electronics, and clean technology research and development.

Our patent attorneys are of the most highly trained in the industry, requiring a scientific background, and passing a second level of testing known as the Patent Bar Examination. Thousands of patents are submitted to the patent office every day and a patent committee reviews each patent for its validity. The process requires that correctly drafted documentation present a clear case for the novelty of the invention, which is best made by a patent attorney with a higher education background in your industry.

Our Asheville patent attorneys & lawyers can help you file a provisional patent, which lasts for 1-year and allows you to immediately begin using/manufacturing your invention with the confidence that your idea is protected. These types of patents are great if you think your idea will change a lot over the next year before you file a (non-provisional) patent. These patents are easier to obtain and are less expensive but you should have a patent lawyer review your provisional patent application to insure that you are meeting your objectives when you file your patent.

What Is a Cease and Desist Letter?

A cease and desist letter does not automatically signify a lawsuit. It is simply a warning about illegal behavior that lets you know that further penalties could follow if the behavior, such as patent infringement, doesn't stop.

Here are some ways it is possible to violate the intellectual property of another:

  • Plagiarizing someone's work
  • Using an invention without the right to access it
  • Engaging in illegal or suspicious activity that involves someone's work

The first step that you can take to address these issues is to send a cease and desist letter. This letter puts the person in violation on notice that they are engaging in illegal use of a property. It advises them to stop, or further action

Patent Example: What Is It?

A patent example is a sample of a patent that has already been granted to someone. A patent example is useful for someone who is applying for a patent and wants to know what information is necessary to include in their patent application.

A patent gives inventors the rights to own their inventions. A patent is granted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office or USPTO. Once inventors are granted their patents, they have exclusive, legal protection to own, produce, sell, use, and create their product for 20 years. This term of 20 years of ownership was established because innovation and technology often make a patent obsolete after 20 years or less.

The system of patenting new technology or inventions was developed to encourage people to pursue new

How to Get a Patent Pending: What Is the Process?

If you want to get a patent pending, all you need to do is file a provisional patent application (PPA) with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Filing the application involves clearly describing your invention and paying a fee ranging from $65-$260, depending on your business size. With the application filed, your invention has patent pending status.

The U.S. Congress set up the provisional patent application as a fairly quick and easy way to get patent pending status. The idea is to let inventors show their work to investors without worrying that t
