What is a patent and how does it help a company?

A patent protects inventions that are novel, inventive and capable of being used in the industry (utility). It grants an exclusive right to prevent others from making, using, selling, offering for sale or importing an invention in the country in which the patent is applied for. For example, if a patent is applied for in India the applicant will have the exclusive right to make, use, sell, offer for sale and import the invention in’s portfolio the stronger and more valuable the company is supposed to be. In addition to the number of patents, quality of patents also matters a lot. It is advisable to approach an experienced and quality patent firm/agent in order to seek help and guidance on drafting, filing and prosecuting patent applications.

What is a provisional patent application?

A Provisional patent application is generally filed when the invention has been conceived but more work needs to be done on the invention to perfect it. This is also known as ‘idea patenting’. Once a provisional application is filed, the applicant has a time period of 12 months to perfect his/her invention and file the complete application.

What is an invention disclosure form?

An invention disclosure form enables a patent drafter/searcher to understand the invention, on hand. The Invention Disclosure form is filled by the inventor and should include as much detail as possible and should highlight the novel points of the invention.

What is a complete Specification?

A complete specification is filed when the invention has taken the final shape and is ready to be filed in a complete manner. A complete application will contain claims which define the scope of your invention.

Why do you need an expert for patent drafting?

A patent expert is needed for patent drafting because efficient patent drafting requires in depth understanding of both technical domain and legal principles. Generally an inventor may be well versed with the technology but may not understand the legal principles very well. It is advisable to take help of patent agents who specialize in that area of technology to which the invention belongs.

How long does it take for a patent application to be granted?

The time taken to grant a patent application usually depends on the country in which the patent application is filed. While some countries grant an application is 2-3 years, some others take nearly as long as 10-12 years. nnThe average time for obtaining a patent in India is around 7-8 years
