Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Shreveport Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Shreveport 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 Shreveport 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.

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.

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

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

What Are Patent Defects?

In the real estate and construction markets, patent defects are problems with a property that a buyer finds during an inspection. Patent defects are caveat emptor, meaning it's the buyer's responsibility to find and fix them, if necessary. Sellers are not legally required to reveal patent defects.

Why Are Patent Defects Important?

You assume many risks when buying property. If you buy a property without identifying patent defects, for instance, then you must fix them at your expense.

Furthermore, the seller doesn't have to reveal patent defects. For example, if patio concrete is cracked or a deck railing is broken, it's up to you to find this during your inspection. Otherwise, you can't take legal action against the selling party. You might have legal options, however, if the seller tries to hide a patent defec

What Is Indirect Patent Infringement?

Indirect patent infringement is the violation of a patent with or without the knowledge of the infringer. A person or company obtains a patent to prevent other people from using an idea or invention. In some cases, however, another person may not be aware of the patent. Article 26 of the CPC describes the "prohibition of indirect use of the invention" or indirect patent infringement.

There are two types of indirect patent infringement: Infringement by inducement and contributory infringement. According to 35 U.S.C. § 271(b), infringing inducement means that an entity causes a third party to infringe on th
