After months or even years of coming up with ideas, developing them and implementing them, the Texas inventor is ready to share his or her invention with others. Often, this involves approaching other companies or the general public with the new invention. Prior to such action, one will want to make sure the invention is protected and patented if possible. Patent law protection may prove to be a critical component to the inventor.

Once a new invention has been developed, the inventor is ready to share it with those for whom it was developed. Sometimes this market involves other companies or business entities. Other companies become aware of the product or technology and may attempt to copy it for their own use. If the invention is not patented, it is possible that others may attempt to use information acquired from the invention in their own products.

This use may be what the inventor intends. However, the inventor also likely intends to receive compensation for such use. In most instances, the inventor is seeking to license his or her invention to other companies.  Under patent law, the invention and inventor can be protected from unauthorized use.

Numerous individuals and companies throughout Texas invent new products and/or technology each year. The goal of such endeavors is typical to make a profit. However, this goal may not be realized if the invention is not patented and the idea is copied by another party. Under patent law, protection is afforded to the individual or company. Experienced legal counsel can help guide the inventor in the proper direction.
