Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Valdosta Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Valdosta 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 Valdosta 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.

Design Patent Drawings

Design Patent Drawings: What Are They?

Design patent drawings are illustrations of a manufactured object's design. They're used in design patent applications. They must include detailed information about any contours, shape, material texture, properties, and proportions. Design patent drawings must clearly show every feature visible during use. No part of the object's design should be left to the imagination. Drawings should include shading that indicates surface characteristics. The shaded areas can depict transparent, solid, and open areas.

Include Every Possible View

When creating design patent drawings, the inventor must include all views of the object's design. If you're in doubt about whether to include it, err on the side of too much. Provide images of the front, top, bottom, back, left, and right. Even if the back isn't seen by a regular user, it

Patent Pending Products: Dangers of Selling Pending Patent Products

What Are the Dangers of Selling a Patent Pending Product?

Applying for a patent with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and getting a patent pending does not legally protect you from infringement. There is still the danger that someone will copy your invention and sell it as their own. Protection comes after your patent issues. You must be careful when presenting your invention to others to minimize your risks.

The biggest danger of selling a patent pending product is infringement. You do not need a patent to sell a product. However, it does help protect you from infringers. People do not want to spend the money to copy your product if they know there is the potential for a lawsuit.

That's why it is always better to get patent pending status for a product before going to market. This does not always stop an infringer. However, it gives you a means to sue for damages i

What Is a Food Patent?

A food patent is a type of utility patent that covers edible products and food-related processes and compositions. The federal government tries to encourage innovation in all fields, including cooking, by granting patents through the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Food patents can be lucrative. Inventors of new recipes with significant appeal should apply for a patent.

Can a Person Patent a Food or Recipe?

Patent Class 426 allows for the patenting of foods and recipes. The language of this rule covers foods and edible materials. The law views food as a composition of matter, which is one of the categories eligible for patents.

An inventor can create a new composition that alters the structure in an innovative way. In other words, a chef can prove originality by crafting a recipe that no one else has ever made before. It still has to meet the same criteria for patents as anything else:

How Long Does a Patent Last?

In general, a utility patent lasts 20 years from the filing date and a design patent lasts 15 years after granted date, but the actual term can vary.

The actual term of a patent is often dependent on 2 factors:

  1. What type of patent is it?

  2. When was the patent filed?

In the US, under the Patent Act, Title 35 U.S. Code, Section 154, a utility patent, which issues from an application filed on or after June 8, 1995, will have a term that effectively begins when the patent issues and expires 20 years from the filing date of the application.

Utility patents issued from applications that were filed prior to June 8, 1995, will have a patent term that the patent holder can choose from the longer of either 17 years from the d
