Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Wichita Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Wichita 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 Wichita 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.

Utility Model

  • 5 min read

What Is a Utility Model?

A utility model is an intellectual property right that is similar to a utility patent and granted to protect inventions which gives the holder exclusive rights to the invention often for a shorter term of 6 to 15 years and less strict patentability requirements. Utility models take six months to one year to obtain and they are best suited for smaller improvements on existing inventions or processes.

Why Are Utility Models Important?

Small and medium size businesses need to protect their inventions and products to stay competitive. However, patents are expensive and hard to get. A utility model is a quicker and cheaper option. Like a patent, utility model applications include drawings, claims, and a description.

MPEP 2143

What Is MPEP 2143?

MPEP 2143 is about "the basic requirements of a prima facie case of obviousness." MPEP stands for "Manual of Patent Examining Procedure," and section 2143 discusses how unique an invention has to be to get a patent

Not every new idea deserves a patent. For instance, think of a table fan that can oscillate 120 degrees. If you invent a fan that oscillates 180 degrees but is exactly the same otherwise, that's too obvious to patent even if it hasn't been done before. You might get a patent if you invent a fan that oscillates a full 360 degrees, but that's because you'd have to invent a new gear system to make it work.

"Obviousness" is hard to pin down, and that's by design. New inventions can be very subje

Patent Drawing Rules

What Are Patent Drawing Rules?

Patent drawing rules are the requirements set by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for drawings, pictures, flowsheets, and diagrams that go with a patent application. Most patent applications contain drawings. In fact, for a nonprovisional patent, a drawing must be provided to explain better and outline the subject matter associated with the patent request. To increase the likelihood of having a patent request accepted, it's important to follow the patent drawing rules outlined by the USPTO.

When you want to submit a patent to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, it's not as easy as filling out a patent application, paying a fee, and waiting for a response. Though

Information Disclosure Statement

  • 5 min read

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 existing patents or related technology than a
