To obtain a patent, it is necessary to submit a patent application to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. After a short delay (about eighteen months if a fee to expedite the application is not paid), an examiner at the Patent Office will review the application to determine if your invention is patentable. BitLaw contains a discussion on the requirements for patentability that provides more information about how the examiner will make this determination.
Patent applications are complicated from both a scientific and a legal point of view. Only patent agents and patent attorneys that have a technical education and have passed the patent bar exam are allowed to assist others in drafting patent applications on their inventions. The application itself must include a detailed description of the invention, should include drawings showing the invention, and must conclude with patent claims. In most cases, the attorney’s fees for a patent application will run between $8,000 and $10,000. Complicated inventions can cost more than this. BitLaw also provides more information on the contents of a patent application.
All of our attorneys have years of experience in drafting patent applications and negotiating with the U.S. Patent Office to obtain an issued patent. If you have any questions about the patent process, please contact us and ask.
