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.

Our Cleveland 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.

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. The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) also issues utility patents for functional improvements to existing inventions. These must be considered non-obvious, useful, and new.

Utility patents are further subdivided into three categories based on the invention's function:

  • Electrical

Information Disclosure Statement

What Is an Information Disclosure Statement?

An information disclosure statement (IDS) describes all prior art or related technology claimed in a patent application. It places the burden of disclosure on the inventor or applicant. If an application doesn't have this statement or fails to include key prior art, any issued patent may become invalid or considered fraudulent.

Information Disclosure Statement: What Is It?

Patent applicants have a responsibility to complete an IDS, which references:

  • all prior art, or patents
  • patent applications, and
  • publications related to an invention.

Because inventors are more likely to be aware of existing patents or related technology than a patent examiner would be, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) requires applicants to disclose all prio

How Do You Patent a Name?

You may be interested in learning how to patent a name in addition to how to patent an idea, however, you cannot patent a name.

It takes about 90 minutes, costs range between $275 and $325, and you will need to check the Trademark Electronic Search System to make sure the name is not already taken.

How Long Does a Patent Last?

In general, a utility patent lasts 20 years from the filing date and a design patent lasts 15 years after granted date, but the actual term can vary.

The actual term of a patent is often dependent on 2 factors:

  1. What type of patent is it?

  2. When was the patent filed?

In the US, under the Patent Act, Title 35 U.S. Code, Section 154, a utility patent, which issues from an application filed on or after June 8, 1995, will have a term that effectively begins when the patent issues and expires 20 years from the filing date of the application.

Utility patents issued from applications that were filed prior to June 8, 1995, will have a patent term that the patent holder can choose from the longer of either 17 years from the d

What Is an Ornamental Design Patent?

An ornamental design patent protects the design of a manufactured object. It is different from a utility patent. A utility patent protects the function and operation of an item. An ornamental design patent only covers the appearance of the product.

"Ornamental" in this case means the visual appearance of a product. This is further explained in the Manual of Patent Examination Procedure. It's defined as "the appearance presented by the article which creates an impression through the eye upon the mind of the observer."

It's important to note the differences between the two types of patents. Many inventors are confused by the options. It's sometimes hard to know which option to apply for. An ornament
