Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Boulder Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Boulder 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 Boulder 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.

Intellectual Property Theft: What Is It?

Intellectual property (IP) theft occurs when someone uses your intellectual property for any reason without your permission. Laws protect intellectual property rights, including trademarks, copyrights, and patents. If you have the proper protections, you can sue for money damages.

Why Are Intellectual Property Protections Important?

Intellectual property is the ownership of an innovation, whether it's a commercial product, an artistic creation, a method or formula, unique symbol, logo or name, or other creation or invention. It can involve a range of creations, including but not limited to a:

Parker v. Flook: What Is It?

Parker v. Flook was a 1978 Supreme Court case involving catalytic converters that established the basis for patenting software. It involved alarm limits on a catalytic converter in an oil refinery. 

Catalytic converters only work under certain pressures and temperatures. A catalytic converter's pressure ranges are known as alarm limits. These can change during conversion. 

Dale R. Flook came up with a method to adjust alarm limits as they changed during conversion. He filed for a patent for this method. The patent was denied because the method's only novel feature was a mathematical formula, which is not patent eligible. The appeal board of the United States Patent and Trademark Offices (USPTO) upheld this denial. 

The Court of Customs and Patent Appeals (CCPA) reversed the decision. They stated that even if the method had limited applications, this did not mean it was ineligible for patent. Eventu

What Is Intellectual Property Law?

Intellectual property law (IP) protects the rights of any person or business who creates artistic work. Artistic work can include music, literature, plays, discoveries, inventions, words, phrases, symbols, and designs. Intellectual property law aims to encourage new technologies, artistic expression, and inventions that all promote economic growth.

Types of Intellectual Property Law

Just like the legal system protects people's physical property rights, it aims to protect people's mental labor, which we call intellectual property. There are several different types of intellectual property.

Copyrights

Copyrights protect any type of expressive art, such as writings, music, motion pictures, architecture, and other original intellectual and artistic expressions. A copyright gives the owner exclusive rights to reproduce their own work, publicly display it, perform it, and create derivat

What Is a Patent Search?

Patent search tools help you conduct a patent search. Conducting a patent search helps ensure your invention hasn't already been patented by someone else. You can also get insight about what your competitors are developing.

Most commonly, an inventor conducts a patent search to find out if someone has already patented their invention. This involves sorting through existing patents, patent applications, and information about unpatented inventions. All of these preexisting inventions are called prior art.

Why Is a Patent Search Important?

A patent search tells you if pursuing a patent on your invention is worth it. If your search reveals a nearly id

Utility Patent Example: What Is It?

Utility patent examples can be helpful tools for completing either a non-provisional or a provisional patent application. There are many of both types of patent application templates available online for public use.

A utility patent protects an inventor's intellectual property. It is the most common type of patent issued. It protects the way an invention works. Anyone who creates an entirely new machine, process, chemical compound, manufactured product, material composition, or method can apply for a utility patent.
