As an experienced patent attorney, we help you file patent applications and protect your rights as an inventor. Patents reward individual inventors with a type of exclusionary right called a patent, which allows the inventor to exclude others from using his invention for a limited time and then afterward donates the invention for use by anyone.
Thus, a patent is a right granted by law which gives an inventor (of a novel and useful invention) a right to exclude others from making, using, selling, offering for sale or importing the patented invention. Examples include machinery, medical devices, computer programs, computer systems and business processes.
The timing of filing for a patent is vital. If the inventor publicly discloses the invention or offers products for sale he or she may be prevented from later obtaining a patent. In addition, the U.S. is now a first-to-file country, which means priority of a patent is given to the first inventor who files a patent application on an invention. To protect your rights, we recommend that you contact one of our experienced patent attorneys to discuss how to file a patent application.
