Information Disclosure Statement

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 patent examiner would be, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) requires applicants to disclose all prio

What is Trademark Design?

A trademark design is any word or icon that represents a company's name, or its brands, products, or services.

Standards for Trademark Design

A company's trademark design must meet United States Patent and Trademark Office standards for uniqueness. The design cannot be too generic, and it cannot resemble a trademark applied for or registered by another company. If your company's design looks too much like another company's design, the trademark office will deny your trademark application.

Reasons to Consider Using Trademark Design

  • Registering your trademark gives you priority over its use

How to Trademark Something

How to trademark something requires several steps to take in order to trademark your intellectual property.

1. Select a Non-Generic Trademark

You cannot legally trademark something that is generic. The stronger your mark is, the easier it will be to prevent people from using it. Every mark falls into at least one of these categories.

  • Fanciful: This is something like an invented word that has no real meaning.
  • Arbitrary: This is an actual word that has a known meaning, but is not in any way related to the product or service that you are offering. For example, the company Apple is arbitrary because although apples are a type of fruit, the company Apple sells computers.
  • Suggestive: This is a type of mark that su

Trademark a Name Cost

What Does Trademarking a Name Cost?

Filing a trademark for your business name with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) will cost between $225 and $600, plus legal fees. You can register with most states for $50-$150 if you don't want protection outside your state.

Trademark protection covers the designs, symbols, words or phrases that identify your business as a source of products or services and sets them apart from competitors' offerings. Business names, logos, and product labels can all be trademarked. If your company sells services instead of goods you would technically use the term "service mark" instead of trademark, but most people use the word "trademark" when talking about services as well as goods.
