Patent Basics.

A patent grants someone the right to exclude others from making, using, or selling their innovation. Generally speaking, in the United States, you have, you have the right to make, use, or sell anything, as long as it is not illegal or  protected by someone else’s patent. However, with a patent, you essentially receive a temporary monopoly in exchange for telling the general public how to make or use your tech. You can have exclusive control over your tech for up to 20 years, depending on the patent type, and perhaps control over tangential tech for longer with some forward-looking strategy. Our firm will effectively help you navigate patent law in Jacksonville and across the United States. Protect your intellectual property Consult with Wilson Dutra

Patent application basics.

There are a variety of patent applications that can be filed depending on your innovation, what your product is, what your goals are, and where you are in the process. Different rules and timelines apply to each type of patent application type, which include national and international filings and design (which protects how something looks) and utility (which protect functionality) applications. If you have already started selling or presenting your innovation to the public, your timeline has already begun, and you could potentially lose the ability to patent your tech. Speak our attorneys to protect yourself and begin filing a patent application in Jacksonville today.

Design Patent Application.

Have a product that will stand out in the market based on how it looks? A design patent application can protect the ornamental features of a product, which means solely protecting how something looks.
This is different from a utility patent application, which protects functionality, and is what people normally refer to when seeking patent protection.
