When developing a new product, to ensure a project's path forward, your financial security, and it's market potential, it is generally wise to first do a thorough competitive market analysis as well as have a professional preliminary patent search
conducted. We suggest this, because whether or not you plan on filing for a patent, you do not want to unknowingly infringe on existing patents or prior art which could result in legal problems, and wasted time and money.
A patent prior art search is a low cost when compared to the potential issues it may prevent in the future, such as dealing with lawyer and attorneys. Additionally, there are games and forms of abuse that exist in the patent system that most are not aware of. In some cases patents are written, not for the purpose of ever bringing an item to market for profit, but to be deliberately obscure and hard to find in valid patent searches for the sake of later litigating over infringement issues. These people are known as "patent trolls" and there are many of them out there.
Once your patent prior art search is complete, and you have a positive Patentability Opinion that a patent may be sought, our USPTO Registered Patent Agents can draft your patent application, and file the patent application electronically, you will then be Patent Pending. For further information about patent prior art searches and the help we can offer, we have a dedicated page providing further explanation
In as little as 30 days, your new product concept can be Patent Pending.
