Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Madison Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Madison 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 Madison 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.

Can You Patent an Idea?

Inventors often wonder, "can you patent an idea." The answer is no. On its own, an idea is not enough to earn a patent. However, an idea can easily turn into a patentable innovation. A person or company simply needs to extend the concept so that it has drawings that qualify for a patent.

What Stops a Person from Patenting an Idea?

The federal government wants to encourage innovation. It grants patents so that people and businesses can profit from their inventions. 

The problem with this goal is that many people want patents. A patent is a powerful tool that gives the owner certain rights and privileges. The government has to make sure that a vague claim doesn't get a patent.

What Is a Patent Keyword Search?

A patent keyword search is a type of patent search that helps you locate patents similar to your invention by looking up keywords in various patent databases. By doing a patent keyword search, you get a good sense of whether your invention can be patented or a competing patent already exists. You can only get a patent for an invention no one has thought of before. 

It is important to remember that just because you have never seen something like your invention does not mean you are the first person to think of it.

What Is a "Patent Pending" Notice?

A patent pending notice is a phrase that is written on your product, website, and marketing material. It lets people know that you've applied for a patent with the USPTO. You see these notices on everything from kitchen appliances and electronics to clothing and shoes. Once you submit a patent application to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), your invention is "patent pending." You are then allowed to describe your invention to others that way until your official patent is granted. This can take several years.

A patent pending notice is not legally required on product packaging, but most attorneys suggest that you use it. This is because you can't sue someone for violating your patent unless your product specifically lists information ab

How to Patent a Logo

While you can learn how to patent an idea, logos cannot be patented because the term patent describes ownership that protects inventions.

However, logos can be protected in a similar way by a trademark or service mark. Trademarks protect logos attached to products while service marks protect logos attached to services. Both trademarks and service marks are often referred to as trademarks. Following these established steps is the best way to trademark your logo.

Reasons to Trademark Your Logo

A logo is any design used by a person or company to promote its business interests. Logos can be images, stylized words, or a combination of these elements.

What Does Patent Pending Mean?

Patent pending means that an application has been submitted to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). When you submit an application for a utility, design, or plant patent, the USPTO issues a patent pending serial number, which serves to alert competitors and the public that you are in the process of seeking a patent on your invention.

The patent pending status does not protect the invention, and you can't sue for infringement if someone copies your idea. You only get full legal protection on your idea once the USPTO approves the patent. So, once you receive approval for your patent application, you can take legal action against
