Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Frisco Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Frisco 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 Frisco 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.

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

How to Search for Patents

How to search for patents is best done by going to the official site of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). This site has two separate search engines for patents and trademarks.

Why Is a Patent Search Important?

The reason someone might do a patent search is to avoid filing a patent that already exists. Two laws, 35 U.S. C. 102 and 35 U.S.C. 103, state that a person cannot get a patent on an existing innovation.

A person who tries anyway will wait at least a year for his or her patent application, only to have it rejected. The

Other countries have different requirements around private and public sales of patentable ideas, so putting an idea or product up for sale could prevent you from obtaining a patent outside of the U.S. as well.
