I came to Mr. Lo Tempio four years ago to patent a game board I was working on. With his help and guidance I not only was able to copyright and patent the product. He also guided me various resources where I was able to create a business plan. I have now not only launched the product and created a brand for the company but have been working with larger distributors such as Walmart and Toy’s R Us. I could not have done it without the help of Vincent Lo Tempio. He is truly a family man and a good person.
What Kind of Patent Do I Need?
A utility patent protects the structure and/or function (i.e., how it works and how it is used) of an invention and is normally pursued in those instances where it is desired to protect how the invention operates. A utility patent can be issued to any person to any person who invents a new, useful, and non-obvious (1) process, (2) machine, (3) manufactured article, (4) composition of matter, or (5) any new and useful improvement to any of these types of inventions.
A provisional patent gives you 1 year from the date of filing to pursue a non-provisional patent.
A provisional patent application for a patent is a U. S. national application for patent filed in the USPTO under 35 U.S.C. §111(b). It allows filing without a formal patent claim, oath or declaration, or any information disclosure (prior art) statement. It provides the means to establish an early effective filing date in a non-provisional patent application filed under 35 U.S.C. §111(a) and automatically becomes abandoned after one year. It also allows the term “Patent Pending” to be applied.
A design patent is strictly directed to protecting the overall appearance (i.e., how it looks) of the invention. It can be granted for a new, original and ornamental design for an article of manufacture.
In most cases, it is better to pursue utility patent protection since protecting the structure and/or function of an invention is preferable over protecting the ornamental design of an invention. However, where meaningful utility patent protection may not be available, or if the appearance of an invention is more important then its structure and/or function, design patent protection may be the best choice. There are also situations where an inventor may feel that structure and/or function and/or appearance are important, and when this occurs, the inventor may choose to concurrently file both utility and design patent applications for the same invention.
The non-provisional patent application is an application for patent filed under 35 U.S.C. 111(a); wherein patent application includes all patent applications (i.e., utility, design, plant, and reissue) except provisional applications. The non-provisional application establishes the filing date and initiates the examination process.
