Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Helena Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Helena 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 Helena 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.

How Long Does a Utility Patent Last?

Utility patents filed on or after June 8, 1995, last for 20 years from the application filing date.

Before this date, patent protections in the United States lasted for 17 years from when the USPTO first gave the patent. The law changed to obey Article 33 of the Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights Agreement from the Uruguay Round Agreements of the General Agreement on Tariffs. Because of this article, the U.S. had to set up a patent protection term that ends no sooner than 20 years from the first application date.

What Is Patentable Subject Matter?

Patentable subject matter, also known as patent eligibility, refers to an invention that meets the standards set forth by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to receive patent protection.

What Are March-In Rights?

March-in rights are rights granted to the federal government. These allow the government to grant patent licenses to other parties or to take licenses for themselves if they helped fund the patent owner's research and development. Such licenses can even be granted to competitors if the government deems it necessary. 

Generally speaking, these rights won't be used unless there are some public safety threats that patent owners cannot handle themselves.

March-In Rights: When They're Used

Besides public safety concerns, the government may also grant patent licenses if the patent owner has not taken any practical steps towards executing the patent. They can even remove exclusive patent rights if the patent isn't deemed suitable for public use. 

In order to avoid march-in rights, patent holders need to co
