A Patent is a right granted by a government to the inventor, giving the inventor
the right, for a limited period, to stop others from making, using or selling the
invention without the permission of the inventor. When a patent is granted, the invention
becomes the property of the inventor, which - like any other form of property or
business asset - can be bought, sold, licensed, etc. Patents are territorial rights.
That means that a US Patent will only give the holder rights within the United States
and rights to stop others from importing the patented products into the United States.
Patents are intended to cover products or processes that have new functional or technical
aspects. The vast majority of Patents are for incremental improvements in known technology;
it has been said that innovation is evolution rather than revolution.

While a patent search is not technically required prior to filing a patent application,
we strongly recommend that at a minimum inventors conduct their own basic patent
searches before investing in filing patent applications. Alternately, we can conduct
various types of patent searches for our clients. If you’d like to begin your own
searching, we recommend visiting the official United States Patent and Trademark
Office site (www.uspto.gov) or Google Patents (www.google.com/patents). We also
recommend you view our patent searching document, available for Free Download when
