How to Get a Patent

Fort Lauderdale Patent Lawyer

Patent rights are “territorial,” meaning that they are only enforceable in the country that issued the patent. A U.S. patent must be applied for, and granted in, the U.S.; it cannot be enforced in other countries. However, there are situations where actions taken outside of the U.S. constitute infringement of a U.S. patent.

An inventor must get a patent in each country where she wants to enforce the patent. Attorneys must be consulted in each country to apply for a patent in that country.

“Prosecution” of a patent application is examination of the application by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office to see if the application and the invention meet the legal requirements for a patent. This process can take several years although it can be expedited.
