What Is a Patent?
A patent grants an inventor the exclusive rights to his or her invention. A patent holder can stop other people from selling, manufacturing, producing, or using the invention for a certain period of time. A patent is a form of intellectual property, which means it's something that didn't exist before someone thought it up.
The Basics of Patent Law
The very first patent laws in the United States were signed into law by our first president, George Washington, on April 10, 1790.
Patent law helps protect intellectual property all over the world. It gives inventors a way to protect their creations from unlicensed manufacture, sale, or use by other people. Patents encourage creativity and innovation, and they allow people to make a living from their innovations. Without patent law, there would be nothing to stop people from stealing the work of others.

How Much Does it Cost?
A patent can cost from $900 for a do-it-yourself application to between $5,000 and $10,000+ with the help of patent lawyers.
A patent protects an invention and the cost of the process to get the patent will depend on the type of patent (provisional, non-provisional, or utility) and the complexity of the invention.
The Cost of Each Patent Application Type
Before you can think about patent costs, you must come up with a unique product idea that doesn't copy prior art. Prior art is any idea or product that already exists. After you have an original idea, you are ready to file a patent application.
The cost of filing a patent application can usually be divided into three parts: United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) filing fees, lawyer fees, and drawing fees.
When you think about how simple or how complex ideas and inventions can be, you can understand why patents have different costs.

What Is a Design Patent Search?
A design patent search involves searching existing patents to make sure your design has not already been patented. A design patent is available for original, new, and ornamental designs for an item. It lasts for 14 years from the filing date. It also allows an inventor to create a new way to design an existing product. The design patent protects this unique design without changing the patent on the item.
There are a few common areas that design patents exist, although you can find them across just about every industry. The most common are furniture, hardware, tools, food preparation, sporting goods, toys, games, and communication equipment.
A design patent is often confusing because inventors aren't sure if they need this or a utility patent. The main difference is that a utility patent covers the entire product, while a design patent only protec
