A patent is a legal document that gives the right of a person in the field of research or an invention. A patent gives its owner the right to prevent others from making, using, importing, or selling the invention without the owner’s approval. In other words, a patent protects an invention and grants the owner the exclusive rights to use the invention for a limited period.
Ex: – Electric iron, Medicine, Telephone, etc.
Utility patents may be granted to anyone who invents or discovers any new and useful process, machine, or compositions or any new useful improvement thereof.
Design patents may be granted to anyone who invents a new, original, and ornamental design for an article of manufacture. It protects the decorative appearance of an item.
Plant patents may be granted to anyone who invents or discovers a new or distinct variety of a plant. For a patent application the most important thing is claims. Claims are the statements of the unique aspects of an invention. A patent claim defines the boundaries of an invention, and defines what it cover and does not cover. It defines the subject matter that is sought to be protected. Claims help protect your rights. Well-written claims give you the exclusive rights to your invention and design. They also protect you in the case that you need to prosecute a competitor for infringement. Another great feature of claims is that you can always add more or amend old claims later. However, you must have claims for your invention as they are required to get your invention patented.
Because claims are the backbone of your patent, it can be extremely difficult to write a precise, USPTO (the United States Patent and Trademark Office) approved Claim. Often times they can be too broad or too narrow. And writing claims yourself is even harder to do and not recommended. For writing strong claims it is best to consult a patent attorney in order to increase your chances for approval. Claims are non-negotiable when filing for a patent. In short, they define the metes and bounds of your invention. Therefore, it is imperative to write them with the utmost attention to detail. Whether this means hiring a patent attorney to help you draft your claims or doing your due diligence in determining how your invention differs from earlier patents. If done right not only will the claims be the deciding factor in the approval or rejection of your patent but will keep you fully protected from competitor infringement.
