Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Columbus Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Columbus 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 Columbus 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.

Claim Chart

Claim Charts: What Are They?

A claim chart is used to show how a product (or a service) has infringed on a patent, typically a utility patent. To prove the case, the patent owner must show that the product or service in question infringes on every portion of the claims. Claim charts break down complicated claims into easily read arguments that both parties can use when deciding a case. They also make it easier to compromise and negotiate with the other side.

The claim chart breaks down a claim by its specific elements. It doesn't have to cover the entire patent claim, and can only focus on the parts of the claim that are valid. Most lawyers agree that the claim chart is only as good as the claims that it contains. If it does not contain all the claim language, a court cannot determine whether infringement has taken place.

Claim charts have multiple names. Within a court of law, pros

Patent Defect

  • 7 min read

What Are Patent Defects?

In the real estate and construction markets, patent defects are problems with a property that a buyer finds during an inspection. Patent defects are caveat emptor, meaning it's the buyer's responsibility to find and fix them, if necessary. Sellers are not legally required to reveal patent defects.

Why Are Patent Defects Important?

You assume many risks when buying property. If you buy a property without identifying patent defects, for instance, then you must fix them at your expense.

Furthermore, the seller doesn't have to reveal patent defects. For example, if patio concrete is cracked or a deck railing is broken, it's up to you to find this during your inspection. Otherwise, you can't take legal action against the selling party. You might have legal options, however, if the seller tries to hide a patent defec

What Are Patent Infringement Damages?

Courts award patent infringement damages to patent holders who can prove that another person or company made, used, or sold a product covered by the patent without the holder's permission. If the court rules in favor of the patent holder, it will decide how much money he will get in damages. The smallest reward paid is typically a reasonable royalty. However, because of the Patent Act, plaintiffs can also recover damages that aren't always available in other cases.

Why Are Patent Infringement Damages Important?

In today's high-tech world, companies aggressively guard their products. One way to do that is by applying for patents to protect their idea

What Is Patent Drafting?

Patent drafting is a part of how to patent an idea and is the process of writing the patent description and claims. It is at the core of every patent application. When the patent is issued or allowed, the draft serves as the specification part of the document.
