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 El Paso 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.

Analogous Art

  • 8 min read

What is Analogous Art?

Analogous art refers to a method of criteria that patent reviewers and courts use to determine whether an idea is too similar to another invention and therefore qualifies as prior art. When looking at a patent application, the reviewer will determine whether the idea is novel and non-obvious to a person of ordinary skill in the claimed field of endeavor.

Some ideas and inventions are so diverse or remote that a person of unordinary skill would be highly unlikely to understand them. If the idea or art is this unique and diverse, it is often referred to as non-analogous and doesn't qualify under the prior art requirement of patent review. However, analogous art that is too similar to another invention or idea will likely not qualify for patent protection.

The analogous art test is very specific. Art is considered analogous when:

  • It is reasonably similar to the problem that the inventor faced; or
  • It

Patentable: What Is It?

Patentable items include new products, processes, and ideas for a utility patent; existing ideas featuring new designs for a design patent; and genetically designed plants for a plant patent.

A person or business can earn a patent in many fields of innovation. Governments want to reward inventors. They use patents to encourage innovation and creativity.

What Are the Main Categories for Patents?

Do you have an idea or innovation you believe is worthy of a patent? Ask yourself if it falls into one of these groups:

  • Plant Patent: This is the rarest type of patent. Unless you're a botanist, you're unlikely to get one. These patents are for special plants that a person can reproduce asexually. Once the person owns the patent, he or she can decide if and when others can reproduce the plant. It's a powerfu

What is a patent citation search?

A patent citation search is a patent search of the titles that legally protect inventions from infringement and describe in detail how these inventions look and work based on the references they provide. You can search for patent citations on their own or use a patent citation search to enhance a keyword or classification search.

Understanding Patents

Patents grant inventors the right to exclusively profit from their inventions. They place an inventor's knowledge into a legal realm to protect it against infringement.

The United States Trademark Office (USPTO) grants patents within the United States to original, innovative, functional, and useful patent applications.

Outside the United States, patents are issued by other government bodies including:

  • The European Patent Office (EPO)

Patent Term Adjustment

  • 11 min read

What Is Patent Term Adjustment?

Patent term adjustment (PTA) is a process carried out by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) that adds days to a patent's lifespan based on delays that occur from the USPTO during the patenting process.

A typical patent has a twenty-year term from the date that the patent is filed. Congress realized that the process for patent prosecution was taking a long time and eating into the lifespan of the patent, so they provided PTA as a way to increase the term of certain patents.

PTA Rules

Patent Term Adjustment is calculated using the rules formed under the Patent Term Guarantee Act of 1999. It is calculated based on examiner and applicant delays during patent prosecution.

Patent Term Guarantees

  • The rules promise to reimburse an applicant for the patent term lost due to prosecution delays caused by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

How Long Does it Take to Get a Patent Pending Status

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 non-provisional application that starts the patent pending process. The process continues until the USPTO issues a patent or denies your application. But it can also end if you abandon your application. The length of patent pending depends on the backlog at the USPTO and the complexity of the application.
