idea

In order for a patent to be given to an inventor, it must be either an original idea or an improvement to an existing product. The main objective of patent law is to protect the patent holder's rights, and one of the quickest ways to derail the application process is the attempt to patent a product, idea or concept that is already patented. Before a Texas company or individual can begin the process of applying for a patent, it is important to conduct a patent search to be sure that no other patent exists for the same invention.

Anyone can search the database of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. However, your search may not be as comprehensive as one done by an attorney who practices in this area of law. Your attorney will be able to conduct a more thorough search, which could save you time and money as you go through the application process.

In addition, the process can be complex, and errors can easily occur. When an application is filed, you can be sure that the patent examiner reviewing it will be careful to ensure that there are no other patents already on file for your invention and that your documentation is in order. Time may be of the essence when attempting to obtain a patent. Therefore, any unnecessary delays could be costly.

You should not attempt to go through this process, in Texas or elsewhere, without a patent law attorney. You deserve to have the exclusive right to your idea or invention, and getting through the application process efficiently is essential. A proper search of the existing records is a crucial element in clearing the way to your patent. Our website contains additional information regarding the process.
