TYPES OF PATENT APPLICATIONS
Design Patent
A design patent protects an ormamental design of a useful item (the way something looks). Cars, shoes, rings and computer icons are all examples. The application process is simple relative to other applications.
Utility Patent
A utility patent is by far the most common type of patent applied for and issued. A utility patent application can be drafted to protect any human-made chemical, machine, device, system, computer program, or method or doing or making almost anything.
Provisional Patent
In the U.S., a provisional patent is a simplified patent application that reserves the right of its inventor to file a utility application for one year. In a sense, it protects an invention temporarily for one year.
Plant Patent
A plant patent covers the creation by a human a new variety of plant if it can reproduce asexually.
International (PCT) Protection

Under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT), inventors can often obtain patent protection in foreign countries if a PCT application is filed with an international receiving office within one year of the first domestic patent filing.

HAVE YOU INVENTED SOMETHING REVOLUTIONARY BUT LACK THE FUNDS TO PATENT YOUR INVENTION?

Although nearly unheard of in the industry, registered patent attorneys can draft patents on contingency, meaning in exchange for a percentage of any royalties earned on your invention. If your invention is truly revolutionary and you lack the funds to prosecute a patent application, we may consider drafting and filing your application for a percentage of the royalties.
