Intellectual Property Law
While the most important type of protect is often a patent or trademark – other, often less expensive types of intellectual property protection may also be available. An experienced intellectual property law attorney can help advise you what types of protection might be appropriate to fully protect your important business assets. Trenner Law Firm has been assisting clients for over 10 years to identify and protect their intellectual property.
How do you protect an invention? File a patent application with the US Patent Office. It is important to work with a registered patent attorney to protect your invention.
The Patent Law was changed in 2013 to be a "First-To-File" patent system. Under the new law, it does not matter who invented first - only who files their patent application first. A provisional patent application can be a fairly quick and cost-effective way to get "Patent Pending" or "Pat. Pend." status for an invention.
Just because you don't see a product in the marketplace (on Amazon or with a Google Search), does not mean that someone has not already filed a patent application. A patent search can help you find if someone else has already applied for a patent for your invention or something similar.
