The Steps to Acquiring a Technology Patent (Cont.)
As long as you file your technology patent within 1 year of making the invention known or available to the public, you shouldn’t face too many problems with deadlines. However, payment of fees and certain documentation required during the patent application process must be made in a timely manner to avoid penalties or denial of your patent application.
Your technology patent must prove your invention/improvement is:
- new – meaning, no one else has patented it;
- useful – it does something functional; and
- not obvious to one skilled in that art.
Any errors in these areas can result in your technology patent application being held up or denied. In this case, you will need the representation of an experienced Los Angeles patent attorney. Your Los Angeles patent attorney will start by performing a patent search to ensure something similar to your idea or invention has not already been patented.
Based on the results of the patent search, your Los Angeles patent attorney can determine what the strength of your patent will be. This information will empower you to make an informed decision on whether to file a patent or not.
