As a Salt Lake City Patent Attorney, I specialize in protecting individual inventors ideas. I can help you protect your invention through the United States Patent and Trademark Office by applying for a patent.
A patent is a property right granted by the Government of the United States of America to an inventor “to exclude others from making, using, offering for sale, or selling the invention throughout the United States or importing the invention into the United States” for a limited time in exchange for public disclosure of the invention when the patent is granted. Without such property rights other companies or individuals can simply copy your invention.
To begin, I suggest we conduct a prior art search to determine whether others have thought of your idea or invention. Armed with the results of this patent search, you will be in a better position to decide whether to pursue patent protection.
If you decide to pursue patent protection, I will draft a patent application to be submitted to the United States Patent and Trademark Office. After submitting your application we will receive an office action either allowing or rejecting the claims. I will then respond to the office action on your behalf.
