What Inventors Need to Know
Protection of an invention idea is typically accomplished through the patent laws. Two types of patents are typically applicable to individual inventors: Design Patents and Utility Patents. However before you file patent application you must confirm that your invention idea hasn’t been already patented by someone else. This process is called patent search which requires considerable time and efforts.
Design patents protect the aesthetic value and elements of a design. Design patents protect the allowed claim for 14 years from the date of the application. But, only one claim is allowed as the application must specify only one design. For this reason, design patents are sometimes easier to obtain. And, they are easier for competitors to work around.

We provide many tools for inventors to help bring their idea to market. But, the most important tool is the ease of our standard method.
License agreements are contracts between someone who owns intellectual property, like a patent, and someone who wants to use the intellectual property. A common situation is where a patent owner licenses the invention idea to a manufacturer or a retailer so the product can be made and distributed. The patent owner receives payments from the manufacturer that are called “royalties”. Of course, not every license agreement is the same.
Sometimes the manufacturer will pay outright for all of the rights of the invention in a single lump sum. Other times, the manufacturer and the patent owner agree that money will only change hands when a product is sold. These types of license agreements more closely resemble a “joint venture”.
Protection for an invention starts with a provisional patent application. Our team will only use licensed, registered patent attorneys.
Additionally, we will provide you with a Non-Disclosure Agreement so you can talk to companies with complete confidence.
