Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Macon Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Macon 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 Macon 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.

If You Need Ongoing Legal Counsel or Ad-hoc Legal Work - We Can Help!

What Is Patent Misuse?

Patent misuse occurs when patent owners abuse their patent rights, typically for utility patents, in a way that prevents normal commerce and trade. It is the first line of defense for people who are accused of patent infringement. When faced with a lawsuit from a patent holder, the goal of the alleged infringer is to prove that the patent owner is using his or her patent privileges to stifle competition.

Over the last decade, the courts have tried multiple times to define patent misuse and how to prove it. While they have made strides, there are still a few gray areas.

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 f

What Is a Patent?

A patent is a set of exclusive rights governed by a state and granted to an inventor for a set period of time in exchange for the disclosure of the creation. If you have patented an invention, you have developed something special and different.

What Is an Invention?

An invention is a concept or object that is newly created and never made before. However, "What is an invention?" is truly a complicated question today. Another question emerges. What truly makes a thing unique or different from what came before it? The Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals, as well as the Patent and Trademark Office, have developed a specific language to define what makes up a genuine invention.
