Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Puyallup Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Puyallup 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 Puyallup 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.

Machine-or-Transformation Test

What Is the Machine-or-Transformation Test?

The machine-or-transformation test was the sole test used by the court, prior to 2010, to determine patent eligibility. The test requires claims to be tied to a particular machine or apparatus, or have it transform an article from one state to another.

In 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court argued in Bilski v. Kappos that a patentable process can't be solely tied to a particular machine or apparatus or involve transformations of a particular article into a different state of matter. This means that many software patents and business method patents remain patentable.

The Supreme Court decided that laws of nature, natural phenomena, and abstract

Patent vs. Copyright

What Is a Patent and What Is a Copyright?

Patents, typically utility patents, and copyrights are both types of intellectual property that grant rights to creators and inventors and protect their work from being exploited without their permission, but differ in the type of property they protect.

Protecting Your Ideas

Business success hinges on ideas. Without an original idea, a business will struggle to turn a profit. But what happens when another business steals that idea? What protects a business from other people trying to take it's money-making products or strategies and turn them into their own? Most companies have two options: patents or copyrights. Choosing between applying for patent protection or registering your work for copyright comes down to what it is you're trying to pr

Design Patent

  • 7 min read

A design patent protects the way a manufactured product looks but not the way it works or how it's structured. Businesses can protect their intellectual property (IP) rights over an original design by applying for patent protection. This should be done before entering the market to prevent a competitor from copying and profiting from your design.

When you are granted a design patent, you have the right to exclude others from using this design in personal and commercial applications. A design patent can patent everything from jewelry to packaging.

Design Patent Eligibility

To be eligible for patent protection, the design must also be useful. A method of creating art, such as a painting or photographic technique, cannot be copyrighted. The design must also be repeatable to qualify for patent protection.

Instead, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issues design patents based on a wor

How to Do a Patent Search

  • 11 min read

What Is a Patent Search?

A patent search involves looking through patent documentation to find out if your invention is new and potentially patentable. A patent gives you a monopoly on the use, sale, manufacture, and licensing of your invention for 20 years.

Why Are Patent Searches Important?

If you invent something, you might be entitled to a patent, but only certain inventions and ideas are patentable. In the United States, three patent types are available, and they determine the length of your patent protections, whether the patent can be extended, and finer legal points. These include:

  • Utility. For inventions with practical applications
  • Plant. For asexually reproducing plant species

Patent Bar

Patent Bar

The patent bar is an exam an individual must take to become a patent attorney or patent agent. It is also known as the patent bar exam or patent exam. By passing this exam, these professionals can represent inventors in front of the United States Trademark and Patent Office (USPTO). Unlike traditional bar exams, applicants do not need a legal background. Instead, those taking the test must show scientific or technical background. An applicant is considered to have this background if they have a science or engineering bachelor's degree from an accredited U.S. or foreign university.

Why Is the Patent Bar Important?

The patent bar is the only way for individuals to represent inventors before the USPTO. Without passing it, there's no legal way
