Questions to Ask Patent and Trademark Attorneys

It is important for inventors to be able to legally protect their creations to ensure that they see the profits they deserve from sales and more. Equally important is for creative people who write music, phrases, taglines, design logos and more to be able to protect this intellectual property as their own. Patents, trademarks and copyrighting are the best way for people to defend their rights to their own work. If you are interested in patenting or trademarking an idea or product it can be helpful to hire an attorney to ensure the process is completed thoroughly and correctly. By properly registering your patent you will protect against infringement. Here are some questions to ask patent and trademark attorneys.

  • What can be patented?
    There are specific laws set by the government describing what can and cannot be legally patented or trademarked. In general it is important for inventions to be novel, non-obvious and something useful to society. Intellectual property must follow many of the same rules and be original and used regularly such as a logo used by a company. It is important to thoroughly search the current list of patents to ensure your idea is a new one.

  • I think someone is claiming my invention as their own, what should I do?
    The first thing to do is double check that your invention or idea was correctly registered and that the registration has not expired. If you have legal rights to the product or creative work then you should hire an attorney before filing an infringement case. Check that the attorney is licensed and experienced at handling patent law. The attorney will suggest the best action to take to stop the infringement and if necessary represent you in a civil lawsuit.

    Patent and trademark attorneys are lawyers, who must attend law school and pass the bar. Licensed patent agents, however, require only a bachelor's degree in a field of science or technology or to demonstrate knowledge of technology in other ways. Agents may only file and prosecute patents, and cannot handle legal cases that may arise from them.

    Most patent attorneys also handle other intellectual property issues. Registered trademarks and copyright are the two other major areas. Patents protect inventions. Trademarks protect makes and models, although they are sometimes also used to protect other kinds of intellectual property. Copyright generally refers to written material, music, and art.

    In addition to legal training, patent and trademark attorneys require a knowledge of technology. They need to understand how prior art works and have a basic grasp of principles so that they do not waste time with something that is not patentable. They need to understand the difference between utility and design patents. Due to the complexity and costs of the procedure, they may work a single case for some time. They may also become involved in corporate charters. Attorneys may also deal with legal battles that involve the infringement of patents or registered trademarks. Their primary duty is to protect the rights of their clients.

    Attorneys may also be involved in searching a patent list or directory to ensure that a new invention neither falls under prior art nor infringes another patent. They also need to keep up with technology and the way it changes. It is likely, too, that as technology changes, so will patent and trademark law and the way it is enforced.
