|Are You Going Banana's Trying To Patent Your New Invention?
A patent is the best legal protection for an inventor, so if you think you have discovered a new way of cooking without fuel or a better computer keyboard that will put you on easy street, you will need a patent. Patents, through the federal government, give a person the exclusive right to make, use and sell an invention for a definite or limited period of time. The U. S. Constitution gave Congress the exclusive power to deal with all matters relating to the issuance of patents. The law recognizes that the inventor has a natural right to make, use and sell his invention or discovery. After an invention becomes known to the public for a year, however, it will become public property if the inventor does not have a patent. When the patent expires, the invention will become public property freely available to anyone who wants to use, reproduce or sell the item. Because of this, it is important to apply for a reissue of your patent before it expires.
If you think you have a great invention and want to have it patented, you must file an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The process can be complicated. Your idea must be explained clearly to a patent examiner to determine whether it is new and useful. You must have an illustration of the device in action. Many people hire patent attorneys, which can be very expensive, to make sure that their patents conform to the U.S. Patent Office rules. If you get a patent, your invention will be assigned a unique number and you alone will have the right to sell your device.
