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 defect fraudulently.

A patent defect is also known as an open and obvio

How to Search for Patents

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 patent application process is known for being slow. It also includes application fees that can cost between $6,000 and $20,000. A patent application takes a long time and costs a lot of money.

A search saves the applicant a great deal of time and money if he or she finds out the patent already exists. That's why the smart strategy is to do searches for patent

Can You Patent an App

Why Should You Patent a Mobile App?

When asking "can you patent an app," remember that patenting a mobile phone application is an important part of protecting your intellectual property and allowing you to seek damage for infringement.

Nearly everyone has a smartphone with mobile applications. Mobile apps are one of the fasting growing segments of the software sector. This makes many people wonder if they can patent a mobile app. In most circumstances, you can. However, there are some limitations. 

An app can be patented because it is part of the methods of interaction. This means it plays a part in how your smartphone functions. However, you cannot patent the computer code that runs your software. This distinction is confusing to many people.  

Bringing your app to market is extremely competitive. The biggest app marketplaces today — the Apple iTunes App Store and Google Play — now offer more than 600,00

On-Sale Bar

  • 7 min read

What Is On-Sale Bar?

On-sale bar is a statutory bar found in Section 102 of the United States Patent Act and can make a patent invalid if the claimed invention has been the subject of an offer for sale or commercial sale and the invention is ready to be patented. 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.

If you don't file for patent protection with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) before putting the idea up for commercial sale, you will lose the opportunity to patent your idea at all. Furthermore, if someone else files a patent application before you do, that person could receive the patent. USPTO reviewers look at the filing date more than the date the product or invention was first u
