What is a patent?
Patents are granted by the government to safeguard the invention. It grants the inventor the sole right to create, use and sell the idea. Society benefits when new technologies are brought for sale. The benefits may be direct terms, as it allows people to accomplish previously unattainable things, or indirectly by the economic benefits (business growth and employment) which the invention provides.
Patent protection is demanded out by many university researchers and drug companies for their research and development. Patents are granted for products, processes, or method of making new materials. In order to be granted protection under a patent the invention must be novel, useful and not apparent to others in the same field.
Patents are a way to give inventors a reward for commercially successful inventions. They act as a motivator for inventors to create. Patents enable inventors and small businesses to know that there is the possibility that they’ll receive a return for their time, effort, and money invested in technology development. They can earn money from their work.
Patents are a crucial part of businesses with the ability to:
Protect the latest products and services;
Improve the visibility and the value of your products on market
Make your brand stand out from the rest.
Access to business and technical knowledge and other information;
Beware of the possibility of accidentally using third-party proprietary content, or losing your valuable information, innovative outputs, or another creative output.
Patents transform inventor’s knowledge into an asset that can be sold, which creates new opportunities to create jobs through licensing and joint ventures.
Small companies that have patent protection will be more attractive to investors involved in the commercialization and development of technology.
Patents can spark new ideas and new inventions. The information you create may be protected by patents.
Patents can be used to serve as an effective deterrent for untrustworthy third parties that profit from an invention’s efforts.
Commercially successful patent-protected technology revenues can be used to fund research and development (R&D) that will boost the likelihood of improved technology in the future.
You can leverage intellectual property ownership to convince lenders and investors that your product is a viable commercial value. A powerful patent can lead to many financing opportunities. Patents as well as other IP assets can be utilized as collateral or security for financing debt. You can also show investors your patent assets to boost the value of your company. Forbes and other publications have noted that each patent could increase the value of your company by as much as $500,000 to $1 Million.
A properly-crafted business plan is essential for startups. It must be founded on IP and explain the way your product or service stands out. Additionally, investors will be impressed when you show that your IP rights are secured or are in the process of becoming secure and that they are in line with your business plan.
It is crucial to keep an invention secret until you file to protect it with patents. Making an invention public before filing it could often erode its originality and render it patent-infringing. Pre-filing disclosures, such as for investors, test-marketing, or any other business partners should be done only after signing a confidentiality contract.
There are a variety of patents, and understanding them is essential to protecting your invention. Patents for utility are used to protect the development of new methods and machines. Design patents cover ornamental designs. Utility patents are the most beneficial as they protect the owner from copycats and other competitors. Patents for utility are usually issued to improve or modify existing inventions. Utility patents can also be used to cover improvements and modifications to existing inventions. A process patent will be a way to describe the actions or methods of performing a specific act. However, a chemical composition would include a combination of components.
What is the length of time a patent will last? Although utility patents are valid up to 20 years from their initial filing, they can be extended by delays at the Patent Office.

In addition to the USPTO search engine, you can use other search engines such as espacenet as described below. It is possible to seek help from a patent attorney or patent attorney. In the US Patents are granted by the US patent and trademark office or by the United States patent and trademark office, which also reviews trademark applications.
Are you looking for similar patents? Here are the steps to follow:
1. Think of terms that describe your invention, based on its purpose, composition, or use.
Write down a brief detailed description of your idea. Avoid using generic terms like “device,” “process,” and “system.” Instead, think about synonyms for the terms you initially chose. Next, note important technical terms as well as keywords.
To help you recognize the key words and concepts, try the following questions.
- What is the goal of the invention? Is it a utilitarian device or an ornamental design?
- Does the invention consist of a method of making something, or fulfilling some function? Is it an object?
- What is the composition of the invention? What is the physical constitution?
- What’s the purpose of the invention?
- What are the terms in the technical field and the keywords that describe an invention’s nature? To help you find the correct terms, consult an online dictionary of technical terms.
2. These terms will enable you to find pertinent Cooperative Patent Classifications on the Classification Search Tool. If you’re unable to determine the correct classification to describe your invention, look through the classification’s Schemas of classes (class schedules). Consider substituting the words you’re using to describe your invention if you do not receive any results from your Classification Text Search with synonyms similar to the words you used in Step 1.
3. Go through 3. Check the CPC Classification Definition for confirmation of the CPC classification you found. If the classification you have selected has a blue box with a “D” to its left, clicking on the hyperlink will take you to the CPC classification definition. CPC classification definitions will help determine the scope of the classification, so you are sure to select the most appropriate. The definitions could also contain search tips or other suggestions which could prove useful in further study.
4. The Patents Full-Text Database and the Image Database allow you to retrieve patent documents that include the CPC classification. By focusing your search on abstracts and illustrations, you can narrow down your search to the relevant patent documents.
5. This collection of patent publications is the best to check for similarities to your invention. Be sure to read the specification and claims. There are many patents available by consulting the patent examiner as well as the applicant.
6. Search for patent applications that have been published using the CPC classification you chose in Step 3 from the Applications Full-Text and Image Database. You can use the same strategy of searching as in Step 4. You can narrow your results down to the most relevant patent applications by looking at the abstract and representative drawings on each page. The next step is to review all published patent applications carefully, paying special attention to the claims as well as other drawings.
7. Find other US patent publications by keyword searching in PatFT or AppFT databases, searching for classification of non-U.S. patents as described below, and searching non-patent patent disclosures in the literature of inventions using web search engines. Here are some examples:
- Add keywords to your search. Keyword searches may turn up documents that are not well-categorized or have missed classifications during Step 2. For example, US patent examiners often supplement their classification searches with keyword searches. Think about the use of technical engineering terminology rather than everyday words.
- Search for foreign patents using the CPC classification. Then, re-run the search using international patent office search engines such as Espacenet, the European Patent Office’s worldwide patent publication database of over 130 million patent publications. Other national databases include:
- European Patent Office (EPO) provides esp@cenet to access a network of Europe’s patent databases with access to machine translation of European patents.
- Japan Patent Office (JPO) – with access to machine translations of Japanese patents.
- World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) offers PATENTSCOPE with a full-text search of published international patent applications and machine translations for some documents, as well as a list of international patent databases.
- Korean Intellectual Property Rights Information Service (KIPRIS)
- State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO) with machine translation of Chinese patents.
- Other International Intellectual Property Offices with online patent databases include Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, India, Israel, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and Taiwan.
- Search non-patent literature. Inventions can be made public in many non-patent publications. It is recommended that you search journals, books, websites, technical catalogs, conference proceedings, and other print and electronic publications.
To review your search, you can hire a registered patent attorney to assist. A preliminary search will help one better prepare to talk about their invention and other related inventions with a professional patent attorney. In addition, the attorney will not spend too much time or money on patenting basics.
