Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Carson City Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Carson City 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 Carson City 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.

Kimble v. Marvel

What is Kimble v. Marvel?

Kimble v. Marvel was a landmark case that went before the Supreme Court in 2015 and addressed whether a licensor can continue to receive royalties after the patent for his product has expired. On June 22, the Supreme Court declined to overturn the per se rule from Brulotte v. Thys Co. and ruled in favor of the defendant, Marvel.

The case covered almost two decades of negotiations, two different lawsuits, and an appeal. It also brought up important questions in terms of what patent law protects, what rights can be transferred, and how royalties work.

The Origins of Kimble v. Marvel

In 1990, a man named Stephen Kimble got a patent (U.S. Patent No. 5,072,856) based on a Spider-Man toy he'd created: a "web blaster" glove that enabled the wearer to shoot foam streams from their hand. This patent was set to expire in 2010. Kimble's claim is that the president of M

How Long Does it Take to Get a Patent Pending Status

  • 10 min read

Wondering how long does it take to get a patent pending status? It occurs the moment you file a provisional patent application (PPA) or a regular patent application with the USPTO.

How Long Does Patent Pending Last: What Is the Process?

Patent pending starts from the time you submit a patent application to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). It ends when they grant or deny you a patent. Most applications are pending for one to three years. However, it can take three to five years or longer for applications involving software or electronics.

The patent pending process begins the moment the USPTO receives your patent application. It can be a provisional or nonprovisional application that starts the patent pending process. The process continues until the USPTO issues a patent or denies your application. However, it can also end if you abandon your application. The length of patent pendi
