The Importance of a Patent

Why should I consider getting a patent?

According to patent attorney Sean Kaufhold, a patent may be advisable in the following situations:

  • The product is clearly a combination or modification of something already found in the marketplace or something that already has a patent.
  • The inventor has determined the invention can be marketed or produced in such a way that it can be profitable and the costs of obtaining a patent do not outweigh the potential profit.
  • The details of the invention have been worked out and it does not require much more time and experimentation.
  • The invention is better suited for patent protection rather than trade secret protection.

What are the advantages of getting a patent?

  • Prevents theft of invention.
    • A patent can protect your invention from being stolen and made & sold by another without your consent.
  • Shows that you are serious.
    • A patent can be a valuable tool for advertising and attracting investor capital. “Patent Pending” and “Patented” are buzzwords that prove you are serious about your invention.
  • Feel pride in your idea.
    • You want to show off your idea. Gaining patent protection allows you to show others your idea with confidence.

Why is it important to act quickly?

Timing is very important when applying for a patent. The United States utilizes a ‘first to file’ system, which means – in a race to the Patent Office where two or more inventors are seeking patent protection for the same invention, the patent would be awarded to the inventor who filed their patent application first, regardless of whether or not he was the first and true inventor of the invention. This is a very important reason why you should carefully consider whether or not a patent application should be prepared and filed in the United States Patent Office as quickly as possible.
