Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Fargo Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Fargo 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 Fargo 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.

Provisional Patent Application

What is a Provisional Patent?

A provisional patent application is a primary, succinct, and simplified description of a hoped-for patented object. It is  a place holder for a complete patent application.

The provisional application is valid for a year, during which time you can develop the idea and decide whether you would like to continue with a true patent application. Meanwhile, your rights to the creation you described are protected. Provisional applications have been used in the U.S. since 1995.

It is important to note that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office does not fully review such applications, as they are temporary and will not necessary become active patents. The registration of the pr

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

How Much Do Inventors Make

How Much Do Inventors Make?

The question "how much do inventors make" does not have one answer. A great invention at the perfect time can earn the inventor millions, a few good inventions can keep the inventor going for years, or inventing can be a money sink that never amounts to anything. However, there are several ways to profit from an invention you should know about.

Invent Smarter, Not Harder

If you want to invent something because you always wanted to do so or because you're passionate about the product, that's perfectly fine. However, you shouldn't expect to get rich just from following your heart. Inventing as a hobby can be great fun, but you'll need to put in a lot more effort if you want to make a profit.

  • Curb your enthusiasm. The first thing to do when you try to make money off your inventions is to keep your expectations low. That way you can set realistic goals and the results w

Patent Classification Search

What is a Patent Classification Search

A patent classification search is a type of patent search done by searching patent classification schemes in patent databases. Patent applications are classified into classification schemes based on their technical content. These patent applications are assigned classifying symbols or codes that make it easier to search for other patents.

By searching with classification symbols, you are able to do a more precise search of existing patents than if you just searched using keywords. Most systems separate patents into classes, known as the original references, and then smaller subclasses. All of these classes organize patents according to their function, composition, manufac

How Long Do Drug Patents Last

How Long Do Drug Patents Last? 

In general, a drug patent will be valid for approximately 20 years. However, there are variables that can influence patent life, either to extend it or, sometimes, to shorten it.

Why Is Drug Patent Life Important?

Intellectual property laws protect drug manufacture and sales through patents. However, a large portion of a drug's patent life can expire due to research, development, and approval time before it ever hits the market.

Once they are marketed, however, drugs make a lot of money. They are depended upon by thousands or millions of people. If a patent for a best-selling drug runs out, other companies can begin engineering it. People will stop buying the original company product, costing that company a great deal of money.

When a company owns a patent to a drug, it is sold under a brand name. Doctors usually prescribe it using that name, which is a patented term for the ingredients in that drug
