Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Green Bay Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Green Bay 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 Green Bay 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.

Essential Patents

What Are Essential Patents?

Essential patents, or standard-essential patents (SEPs), are patents, such as a software patent, that a company owns and shares with other companies to create a technology standard. Think of an essential patent as one part of a future product that would benefit an industry. Usually, these patents become licensed to standards organizations or companies with the same goal.

When essential patents are licensed, an agreement exists among all those with stake in the patent.

  • The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) often gets essential patents from companies. The IEEE then uses their skills to make new products. The deal between this standards organization and the patent holder is that the essential patent can't be used on its own. Instead, the patent must be used to create something all people interested in the patent want.

What Is a Licensing Agreement?

A licensing agreement, or license agreement, is a deal between the owner of a patent, brand, or trademark and someone who wants to use the patented or trademarked goods and services.

What Does a Patent Do?

When asking "what does a patent do," remember that a patent gives the patent holder exclusive rights to an inventive process or product. The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) grants these rights to inventors who have created a new way of doing something or provided a technical solution to a problem.

To obtain a patent, an inventor must provide information about the invention in a patent application, which is then disclosed to the public. Once granted a patent, the patent owner can give permission to license the invention at his or her discretion. The owner can also sell the rights to the invention, transferring patent ownership to the buyer.

After granting your patent, the USPTO will send your patent issue in the mail. It will feature the USPTO seal and be signed by the Commissioner of Patents and Trademarks

Business Method Patent

  • 5 min read

A business method is a method of operating an aspect of an economic enterprise. A business method patent is a type of patent that claims or shows a new way of doing business. New types of e-commerce are one such example. Business method patents are a relatively new concept, and have been around since 1998. Prior to this time, it was argued that business methods could not be patented, and up until 2005, the United States Patent Office required that business method inventions must apply, involve, use or advance the “technological arts” in order for a patent to be approved.

The current USPTO guidelines require that a process must produce a “concrete, useful and tangible result” in order to be patentable. Thus a business method can now be patented regardless of whether or not it must be done on a computer. Business method patents are important asset
