PATENT ADVICE & PATENT COST INFORMATION

WHAT IS A PATENT?

A patent application will be about the ideas behind your product such as how it works, what it does, and why. A granted patent gives its owner the right to prevent anyone else producing, importing or selling, within the geographical jurisdiction.

WHY PATENT A PRODUCT?

Making a patent application gives you a date for priority over other people for your application, ideas, or product.  It also lets you claim you have a ‘Patent Pending’ which can be useful for many commercial reasons.

A granted patent provides a monopoly over the idea and so prevents all competitors from creating imitation or similar products that use the idea.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PATENTING, BENEFITS, AND COST

Although patents are very important they are not applicable to every project. Sometimes it is not possible to obtain a patent on your idea and sometimes there are other more relevant forms of protection from which you could benefit. See our page – Vital Information.

HOM MUCH DOES IT COST TO PATENT AN IDEA?

We conduct a free review to help establish which form of idea protection is right for you so that you can avoid unnecessary patent costs. Some people may choose to seek the services of a patent agent or attorney firm from day one but this is not likely to be the best course of action for an inventor new to the game. Patent agents cannot give you help with presentation, design, development, or prototyping, or provide commercial advice, so if your project is still at an early stage it’s likely to be a waste of their time and your money.
Patent agents are necessary for legal matters, such as filing overseas. If you have already fully developed and prototyped your product and/or you have already submitted a UK patent application, we can help with finding a patent attorney or agent.

Innovate Product Design is not a law firm, but a product design firm, with a wealth of design experience of what makes for commercial success of an idea. At Innovate we understand the requirements of individual inventors and tailor our range of services to suit their budget. Innovate can help draft a specification for a patent application. We recommend always, however, to involve a Patent Attorney to deal with patent matters as they can be complex.
Innovate stress to clients that all disclosures made before employing a Patent Attorney should be kept confidential and that there must be no offer for sale or public use of an invention as this may jeopardize obtaining protection for an invention.

The material in this website is commercially focused and generalized information and opinion about successfully working within the existing legal framework of Intellectual Property, patents and patent law; and should in no way be viewed or construed as legal advice. Advisors at Innovate are not and will not be lawyers unless this is specifically stated.
