More Information: Non-Provisional, Design and Provisional Patent Application Filing

Many people ask, "how do I get a patent?" A Patent Application is a complex legal document, best prepared by a registered patent attorney or agent. The more skilled your attorney is, the better chance you have of being granted a patent. Noro IP’s skilled attorneys will take the guesswork out of the filing process to comply with all the requirements of the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). We include up to four technical patent drawings in your patent application so that your invention is clearly understood. Additional drawings are only $99 each.

There are three types of patents you may apply for:

Patent Process Flow Non-Provisional Design Patent Application

1) Design Patent

A Design Patent allows any person who has invented any new and non-obvious ornamental design for an article of manufacture to protect that design. The Design Patent protects only the appearance of an article, but not its structural or functional features and has a term of 14 years. Filing a Design Patent allows an inventor to claim "patent pending" status and design patents tend to have a higher rate of maturing into a patent (90% for Design Patents vs. 40% for Non-Provisional Patents).

2) Plant Patent

A Plant Patent grants a patent to anyone who has invented or discovered and asexually reproduced any distinct and new variety of plant and has a term of 17 years.

3) Utility Patent

A Utility Patent is the most common and protects an invention (a process, machine, manufactured item or composition of matter) for a term of either 1 year or 20 years. There are two types of Utility Patent Applications: Provisional and Non-Provisional. Please see below for an explanation. If you are unsure which is right for you, call Noro IP and one of our specialists will advise you on how to best proceed.

     Utility Patent Application: Provisional

     A Provisional Patent Application provides immediate protection for your invention while giving you time to file a regular Patent Application. A Provisional Patent allows an inventor to claim "patent pending" status for the invention for 12 months at a fraction of the price of a regular Patent Application. Often five to ten pages, a Provisional Patent Application consists of text and drawings that describe how to make and use your invention. It provides the inventor with a 12 month period to further develop the invention, determine marketability and seek licensing agreements. If you file a regular Patent Application within 12 months of filing the Provisional, you can claim the original Provisional filing date to prove that your invention came before other similar developments.

     Utility Patent Application: Non-Provisional

     A Non-Provisional Patent Application is a regular Patent Application that will protect your invention for 20 years. The US Patent and Trademark Office has very specific requirements for preparing and filing a Non-Provisional Utility Patent Application, which must include a data sheet; a specification; a claim or claims; drawings, when necessary; an oath or declaration; and the prescribed filing, search, and USPTO examination fees. Filing a Non-Provisional Patent allows you to legally claim "patent pending" throughout the duration of the patent process. All Patent Applications undergo Noro IP’s thorough quality assurance checks before they are submitted to the USPTO. 

Please note: Noro IP strongly recommends a thorough Patentability Search of your invention before filing an application in order to assess your chances of being granted a patent. This will save you considerable time and money.
