Evaluation Board IconEvaluation & Documentation

Your patent expert will evaluate your invention’s patentability and market potential. Detailed research will be conducted to determine if any existing patents or prior art exist that could affect the invention’s novelty and non-obviousness. Your expert will then document all relevant information, including technical details, sketches, and any supporting data.

Once the idea is deemed patentable, your remote patent specialist will perform a comprehensive patent search to identify any prior art or existing patents that may be relevant to the invention. The search results will be analyzed, and a detailed report outlining the patentability prospects will be provided to you.

VE’s skilled patent professional will draft a comprehensive patent application that accurately describes your invention. Our team of experienced patent attorneys works closely with the inventors to capture all the essential technical details and various aspects of the invention. It is ensured that the application meets all the legal requirements and includes strong claims to protect the invention.

Once the patent application is filed, your patent expert handles the prosecution process with the patent office. This includes responding to any office actions or rejections from the examiner. Our team meticulously prepares and submits persuasive arguments and amendments to overcome any objections the examiner raises. Regular communication with the patent office ensures a smooth and efficient prosecution process.

After the patent is granted, VE’s patent team provides you with ongoing support for maintenance and enforcement. Our patent professionals help you to understand the requirements and deadlines for paying maintenance fees and provide reminders to ensure timely payments. In case of any potential infringement, you get assistance in enforcing the patent rights, including sending cease and desist letters, negotiating licensing agreements, or pursuing legal action when necessary.

Who are Patent Specialists?

Patent specialists, also known as patent experts or patent professionals, are individuals with specialized knowledge and expertise in patents and intellectual property. They play a crucial role in assisting inventors, businesses, and organizations throughout the patent process, offering comprehensive guidance and support. Some of the key types of patent specialists are:

  • Patent Attorneys – Patent attorneys are legal professionals who specialize in patent law. They have a law degree and are licensed to practice law, specifically on patents and intellectual property rights. Patent attorneys help you with all aspects of patent protection, including conducting prior art searches, drafting patent applications, prosecuting patents with the relevant patent offices, and providing legal advice on patent infringement and enforcement matters.
  • Patent Agents – Patent agents are professionals with technical expertise registered to practice before patent offices. They may have scientific or engineering backgrounds, allowing them to understand the technical aspects of inventions. Patent agents work closely with inventors to draft patent applications, conduct prior art searches, and assist in patent prosecution. They know how to navigate the complex patent system and can provide strategic guidance.
  • Patent Examiners – Patent offices employ patent examiners and are responsible for evaluating patent applications. They assess the novelty, non-obviousness, and utility of inventions to determine whether they meet the criteria for patent protection. Patent examiners have technical backgrounds and expertise in specific fields, enabling them to conduct thorough examinations and ensure that granted patents adhere to legal requirements.
  • Patent Searchers – Patent searchers specialize in conducting comprehensive prior art searches. They utilize various databases, patent libraries, and search techniques to identify relevant patents, scientific publications, and other information sources that may affect an invention’s patentability. Patent searchers provide inventors and patent professionals with critical information to assess the novelty and non-obviousness of an invention, helping to shape the patent strategy.
  • Patent Consultants & Strategists – Patent consultants and strategists offer specialized expertise in formulating and executing patent strategies. They work closely with inventors, businesses, or legal teams to develop an effective approach to patent protection, portfolio management, and commercialization. Patent consultants provide guidance on patent landscape analysis, technology assessment, patent valuation, licensing strategies, and enforcement considerations.

What are the Various Types of Patents?

Several distinct types of patents that can be obtained depending on the nature of the invention. Some of the main types of patents are listed below:

  • Utility Patents – New and useful methods, manufactures, machinesor compositions of matter, or enhancements to them, are covered by utility patents. It grants its owner the right to exclude others from making, using, or selling the invention for up to 20 years after the date of patent application filing, provided maintenance fees are paid.
  • Design Patents – Design patents protect a new, original, and ornamental invention embodied in or applied to an article of manufacture, and gives its owner exclusive rights to manufacture, use, and sell it. A design patent is valid for 15 years after being granted. Design patents do not require yearly maintenance fees.
  • Plant Patents – Plant patent are obtained for a brand-new, uniquely developed asexually reproduced plant, such as cultivated sports, mutants, hybrids, or recently discovered seedlings, but it is impossible to acquire a plant patent for tuber-propagated plants or uncultivated plants. Patent holders are then granted a 20-year right to prevent others from producing, using, or selling the plant. Plant patents are exempt from maintenance fees.
  • Reissue Patents – Reissue patents are given to correct a mistake in an earlier-issued utility, design, or plant patent. While the original patent’s period of protection is unaffected, the reissue patent may alter the patent’s scope of protection.
  • Software Patents – Software patents protect inventions related to computer software or computer-implemented processes. These patents cover algorithms, methods, or computer programs that provide a novel and non-obvious solution to a technical problem. Software patents can be challenging due to the evolving landscape of patent eligibility criteria and subject matter eligibility laws.
  • Business Method Patents – Business method patents protect novel methods or processes that have a practical application in business or commerce. These patents cover innovative techniques, systems, or strategies for conducting business, managing financial transactions, or organizing business operations. Business method patents have been scrutinized recently, and their eligibility may vary based on jurisdiction.
  • Pharmaceutical Patents – Pharmaceutical patents protect new chemical compounds, drug formulations, or treatment methods in the field. These patents provide exclusive rights to pharmaceutical companies for a specified period, allowing them to recoup research and development costs and profit from their innovations.

Why are Patents Important?

Patents are essential because they protect intellectual property, incentivize innovation, promote knowledge sharing, drive economic growth, facilitate market exclusivity, foster collaboration, and provide legal protection. By encouraging inventors to disclose and protect their innovations, patents contribute to a dynamic and thriving innovation ecosystem that benefits society.

  • Protection of Intellectual Property – Patents provide legal protection for inventions and innovations, granting exclusive rights to the inventor or assignee. This protection prevents others from making, using, selling, or importing the patented invention without permission. Patents safeguard the time, effort, and resources invested in developing modern technologies, products, or processes, ensuring that inventors can reap the rewards of their creativity and innovation.
  • Incentive for Innovation – Patents incentivize innovation by granting inventors a limited monopoly over their inventions. This exclusive right motivates inventors and businesses to invest in research and development, as they can profit from their creations. The promise of patent protection encourages risk-taking, promotes breakthrough discoveries, and fosters technological advancements.
  • Promotion of Disclosure and Knowledge Sharing – To obtain a patent, inventors must disclose their invention in a detailed and comprehensive manner. This disclosure contributes to the body of knowledge in the respective field, promoting the sharing of technical information and encouraging further research and innovation. Patents serve as a valuable resource for researchers, enabling them to learn from previous inventions and build upon existing knowledge.
  • Economic Benefits – Patents have significant economic benefits for inventors, businesses, and economies at large. They provide inventors with a competitive edge, attracting investors, partners, and customers. Patents can be monetized through licensing or sale, generating revenue streams, and fostering business growth. Furthermore, patents contribute to job creation, technological advancements, and increased productivity, driving economic development and prosperity.
  • Market Exclusivity & Market Positioning – Patents grant inventors a period of exclusivity in the marketplace, allowing them to establish a dominant position for their invention. This exclusivity enables inventors to differentiate their products or technologies, build brand recognition, and capture market share. Patents act as a barrier to entry for competitors, providing a window of opportunity to establish market leadership and reap the rewards of innovation.
  • Collaboration & Technology Transfer – Patents facilitate collaboration and technology transfer between inventors, businesses, and research institutions. Through licensing or cross-licensing agreements, patent holders can share their technology with others, fostering collaboration, innovation, and the development of new products or processes. This exchange of ideas and expertise accelerates progress, leading to advancements that benefit society.
  • Protection against Infringement & Litigation – Having a patent provides legal protection against infringement, allowing patent holders to enforce their exclusive rights and take legal action against unauthorized use. Patents act as a deterrent, reducing the likelihood of others copying or imitating an invention. In case of infringement, patent holders can seek remedies, including damages and injunctions, to safeguard their intellectual property rights.
