Do you have an idea?

  • Can the idea be patented?

  • What category of patent does you invention fall under?

  • What can you do to protect your rights while waiting for your patent application to get approved?

Inventions are at times conceived by accident, while at other times they are a bi-product of necessity. Some are calculated by corporate designers or professional inventors, while others are merely a result of household innovations. 

 

However, ideas seldom translate into patents. Once an invention achieves "patent pending" status, the filing of the patent application can be used to embark on a potentially lucrative endeavor.
