Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Murfreesboro Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Murfreesboro 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 Murfreesboro 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 Search Tools

  • 6 min read

Patent search tools help you conduct a patent search. Conducting a patent search helps ensure your invention hasn't already been patented by someone else. You can also get insight about what your competitors are developing.

Most commonly, an inventor conducts a patent search to find out if someone has already patented their invention. This involves sorting through existing patents, patent applications, and information about unpatented inventions. All of these preexisting inventions are called prior art.

Why Is a Patent Search Important?

A patent search tells you if pursuing a patent on

Patent Expiration

What Is Patent Expiration?

As part of the how to patent an idea process, in the United States, patents expire within 14-20 years from the filing date, depending on what you've patented and when. Once this happens, your idea passes into the public domain.

Once a patent expires, an average of 17.2 competing companies hit the market with similar products. While the public may view this as good because it means the invention is available to everyone, it often results in a loss of income for the company that originally held the patent.

To see if a patent is still in force, use the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) website and look up the patent. You'll see its imag

Post Grant Review

  • 8 min read

What Is a Post Grant Review?

A post grant review is a way of questioning a patent's validity recently issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark office. The America Invents Act (AIA) created it as a counterpart to inter partes review. Together, they replace the inter partes re-examination. A post grant review is available immediately after the patent has been issued. An inter partes review becomes available after the post grant review period has passed.

Post Grant Proceedings

The post grant review process was designed to allow the proceeds to be quick. The Director needs to set the rules that explain how long the proceedings will last within one year from the start of the proceedings. If the Director can show sufficient cause, he or she can set the rules within 18 months.

Information Disclosure Statement

  • 5 min read

Updated November 2, 2020:

What Is an Information Disclosure Statement?

An information disclosure statement (IDS) describes all prior art or related technology claimed in a patent application. It places the burden of disclosure on the inventor or applicant. If an application doesn't have this statement or fails to include key prior art, any issued patent may become invalid or considered fraudulent.

Information Disclosure Statement: What Is It?

Patent applicants have a responsibility to complete an IDS, which references:

  • all prior art, or patents
  • patent applications, and
  • publications related to an invention.

Because inventors are more likely to be aware of

Patent Ambiguity

  • 5 min read

What Is Patent Ambiguity?

Patent ambiguity refers to uncertainty on the face of a legal document. This gives the agreement or contract an indefinite meaning. When a document includes a patent ambiguity, no external evidence can show the testator's intention, which remains unclear. A patent ambiguity may invalidate an agreement or contract.

Patent Ambiguity: What Is It?

Also known as intrinsic ambiguity, ambiguitas patens, or Section 93 of the Indian Evidence Act, patent ambiguity makes the intention behind a legal document unclear. Relying on the plain meaning of the words doesn't allow for clear interpretation. Instead, the document's obscure or senseless language makes its overall meaning ambiguous.

This happens, for instance, when a contract includes two sale prices that contradict each other. Patent
