Am I ready to apply for a patent?

Question 1: Did you invent a new and useful:

  • Process;
  • Machine;
  • Article of Manufacture;
  • Composition of Matter; or
  • Improvement to any of the above?

 

If so, which did you invent?

 

Question 2: What steps of the process, or what physical features/aspects of the machine, article or composition do you believe might be new and different? Please list them all.

 

Question 3: What is the closest prior art example, or the closest process or product that you are aware of which relates to your invention? Please do a basic internet search!

 

If you can answer the above questions, then you are ready to take the next steps:

 

  1. Prepare an Invention Disclosure for discussing with an attorney; and
  2. Schedule a Free Telephone or Skype Consultation (access a calendar of available appointments via the link at the top of this page, or give us a call).
