Invention Attorneys Practicing Inventors Law in Orlando
Have you ever seen a product for sale and said to yourself, “I thought of that 10 years ago”? Do you currently have an idea for a new product or service, but are not sure what you can do to profit from it?
Let’s face it, many individuals do not have the ability to build complex prototypes and/or the financial resources to have a large factory mass produce items for them. Even if you did, what good does it do if someone else can make the same product and sell it for less? Wouldn’t it be better if you could obtain the exclusive rights to your new idea in the United States so that no one else could make it without going through you? You can, and we can help.
At Daniel Law Offices, P.A., our registered Invention Lawyers help inventors to secure the exclusive rights to their ideas by filing for patent protection with the United States Patent Office. Our patent applications are typically much less expensive than building a prototype. Best of all, once a record of your invention has been filed with the U.S. Patent Office, you will be “patent pending” and can safely discuss your idea with any number of companies who may be interested in purchasing the patent application and/or the exclusive rights afforded to you by an issued United States Patent. In fact, patents are so important that most major companies will not even speak with inventors that do not have some type of patent application on file with the United States Patent Office.
At Daniel Law Offices, P.A., our principal attorney Jason Daniel is both an electrical engineer and a registered patent attorney. As a result, he will personally work with you one-on-one to figure out all of those technical details before filing your patent application. Unlike big firms who only work with companies, our practice is dedicated to assisting individual inventors and startup companies with all of their Intellectual Property needs. Whether your idea is for a new “Mobile App”, an innovative tool, or even an improvement on an existing product, the only real way to protect any invention is through a United States Patent. Please be sure to check out our FAQ videos which answer many of the most commonly asked questions.
Beware of Invention Submission Companies
We know that you want to discuss your idea with someone, but can’t because you are afraid they may steal your idea from you. This is the situation many clients find themselves in when they contact our office. Unlike invention submission companies and other types of Agents, only Registered Patent Attorneys are bound by state and Federal guidelines to maintain a strict attorney-client confidentiality. This relationship ensures that anything you discuss with your patent attorney remains confidential at all times.
Don’t be fooled by invention submission companies who offer to help you license your invention without obtaining a patent. This is especially important if you wish to sell your invention since the vast majority of companies in the United States will not even consider purchasing a new idea from anyone, unless a proper United States Patent Application has been filed. This is because it is impossible to sell the rights to something you do not own, and the only way to own the rights to an idea is through a Patent. These companies may also insist on developing prototypes which is often a complete waste of money, because companies who buy inventions have the capability to easily and cheaply manufacture prototypes themselves. Moreover, a prototype is not necessary to obtain a U.S. Patent under Inventors Law.
Most importantly, all inventors should be aware that once a product is offered for sale (including offers from invention submission companies), you only have one year to file a patent or you lose your rights to do so forever. This means that anyone can make and sell your idea and you have no legal recourse against them. Moreover, with the recent enactment of the America Invents Act, this one year time-frame can be eliminated if the company produces a similar product with only a couple of small variations.
Invention Patent and Trademark Registration can be Affordable
Inventors often think they cannot afford to hire a Patent Attorney and thus turn to a patent agent and/or invention submission company for assistance. However, invention submission companies are not regulated by the government and do not have a mandated fiduciary duty to their customers. As a result, we receive calls almost daily from inventors who have lost the rights to their inventions after dealing with these get rich quick companies.
