A Provisional Patent Application

A provisional patent application is, in layman’s terms, like a temporary patent. When you file the application, it gives you twelve months from the postmarked date to work on and try to get investors for your invention or your marketing plan in place. With a provisional patent application, your invention is completely protected during this time, as if it were actually patented.

You’ll find companies online online that allow you to file for patent applications through them. For a small fee, they make the process much easier and faster to deal with than if you were trying to do it on your own as you can read from https://thriveglobal.com/stories/a-discussion-about-inventhelp-and-helping-people-achieve-their-goals/.

The patent application process can be a real headache, so it is important to be methodical. If you’re impatient by nature, this probably won’t be a good fit for you. Patience is for sure a virtue when it comes to getting an invention patented. It also costs money to file a patent, so make sure that you have the funds available when it comes time to pay.

Getting a patent takes time, it takes educating yourself, it takes money, and it takes thick skin. It also takes a business mindset. It’s not going to be easy, fast, or a fun process but, if done right, it can make the inventor a lot of money. If done wrong, well, you know…

A provisional patent application creates a weeding-out process. If you think about the time involved, the money involved, and the knowledge one must possess it not only brings in money for the government (which doesn’t thrill me), it also weeds out the people who aren’t serious about their invention. They aren’t likely to clog up the system with their applications and thus, the cream will rise to the top. It always does.

Because of the way the process is designed, many inventors file patents on multiple inventions. The more patented inventions you have, the better your chances are that one of them will be a hot seller. That being said, millions have been made off of just one product in numerous instances. So if the invention is really good, one is all you will need to be set for life as described on https://easyreadernews.com/why-inventhelp-has-become-so-crucial-for-new-inventors/.

Once you have the patent, you are free to go out and shop the invention around to potential investors and see if you can get the product into stores. Or… enter the Shark Tank!

Once your invention has made it onto television commercials and store shelves, the sky is the limit. What starts out as an idea can quickly morph into a living, breathing invention. All you need is an original idea and the drive to accomplish your goal.

Features of Tesla Cars

The basic premise behind the creation of Tesla Motor cars is of course that they feature two ground breaking features in their design as shown in http://theavtimes.com/2020/07/01/amazing-ways-inventhelp-can-assist-you-as-an-inventor/ article. They are a complete revolution in the automobile industry in that all Tesla cars are powered electrically, thus eliminating the use of petrol derived from fossil fuels, and of course reducing carbon dioxide emissions since the CO2 producing combustion engine has been done away with.

Described below are a few of the features of Tesla car although they all have a common power source provided by a Lithium-Ion battery pack of varying ratings.

Tesla Roadster. Among the main features of the Tesla Roadster is its capability to travel for more than 200 miles (320km) on just one charge, although under ideal test conditions a distance of over 311 miles (501km) was achieved.

The performance of this attractive sports vehicle is comparable with petrol driven cars, having an acceleration rate of reaching 60MPH in less than 4 seconds, and having a top speed of about 125MPH. Power is supplied from Lithium-Ion battery cells rated at 21.7 Kwh. Additional features for future models of the Roadster will include a new front fascia, directional forged wheels, and improved interior sound reduction.

Tesla Model ‘S’. The ‘S’ model is a full sized 4 door hatchback electric motor car once again featuring Lithium-Ion battery cells as its power source. It has an operating range of 265 miles (426km) surpassing that of its brother the Roadster, by the use of a 85Kwh battery pack on just one charge. A reduced operating range of 208 miles (335km) is featured by the use of an EPA rated battery cell pack of 60Kwh.

The model ‘S’ is currently ranked as the best selling plug in electric car in N.America outselling the Chevrolet Volt (GM) and the Nissan Leaf by a large margin. Interestingly there is now talk of an additional feature, and the CEO of Tesla Motors, Elon Musk is listening, about the introduction of an autopilot to future models of the ‘S’ version as you can read about on https://www.newsbreak.com/news/1606220763464/how-new-inventors-are-benefitting-from-inventhelp-assistance.

Tesla Model ‘X” Model ‘X’ is a crossover sports utility electric vehicle. The main features of the ‘X’ are two Lithium-Ion battery cell power sources, one of 60Kwh, and the other of 85Kwh. Additional features include four wheel drive being driven at both back and front by two independent motors, and although it is heavier then the Tesla ‘S’ version does contain approximately 60% of the parts used in the ‘S’ version.

The model ‘X’ have upward opening falcon wing type doors for the rear passengers, with an interior similar to the ‘S’ model both having a 7” touch screen control panel as part of the central dashboard. There is no problem with luggage carried by the 7 passengers the ‘X’ can accommodate since there are two trunks available one located at the rear of the SUV and the other under the front hood.

Elon Musk

Inventor of the century, ELON MUSK, boss of Tesla and SpaceX , is revolutionizing transport, energy and aeronautics.

Elon Reeve Musk , born June 28, 1971 in Pretoria, entrepreneur, engineer, inventor, is known to be the boss of Tesla Motors, the pioneers of the electric automobile, of SpaceX – his own astronautics company, but also president of the SolarCity board of directors and co-founder of PayPal and Zip2 as you can see from https://usa.inquirer.net/56347/everything-you-need-to-know-to-be-a-successful-inventor.

Childhood and Studies

Elon grew up in South Africa, from an engineer father and a nutritionist mother, he very quickly started reading many books. At the age of 12, he programmed his first video game called ‘Blastar’ which he sold to ‘PC and Office Technology’ magazine for a value of $ 500.

As a teenager, the young man already dreams of studying in the United States and shortly before his 18th birthday, he emigrated to Canada. He quickly obtained Canadian nationality from his mother, born Canadian.

At the age of 19, he began to study at ‘Queen’s University’ in Kingston – Ontario where he spent 2 years which he financed through odd jobs. In 1992 he moved to the United States to study at the ‘Wharton School’of Philadephie where he obtained a scholarship. He will study there for 3 years and will be graduated in business and physics.

In 1995, he moved to California where Stanford University offered him a scholarship to pursue a doctorate in energetic physics. But Elon, not wanting to devote more time to studies, he suspends his doctorate overtaken by his entrepreneurial fever and his futuristic ideas of renewable energies and space travel as stated in https://www.hometownstation.com/santa-clarita-news/use-inventhelp-to-kick-start-your-career-as-an-inventor-today-335441.

The people with whom he discusses his plans will tell him that he is crazy and that he will not complete any of his goals. Elon does not let himself be discouraged, however, and the future will prove to them that they were wrong not to trust him.

Expertise in Patent Record

Patent attorneys preform various roles when working with prospective inventors. Most importantly, attorneys must discuss inventions and explain the detailed processes with manufacturers or companies. It is only through maintaining a continuous line of open communication that the patenting process can be most successful. Further, patent attorneys are often aware of the technicalities or problems that arise during the patent process.

Using this ability, attorneys help inventors pin point any kind of complications that could potentially hinder their client’s application as seen on https://midhudsonnews.com/2020/05/10/how-does-inventhelp-support-new-inventors/. As well, their expertise in various disciplines provides patent attorneys with a significant amount of helpful advice for clients needing to better define their inventions themselves.

For example, the attorney may suggest greater clarification or explanation on the patent itself in order to eliminate any type of confusion and promote clarity in the client’s application. Patent attorneys also devote great attention toward application and renewal deadlines to ensure their client is always informed.

Finally, patent attorneys not only help individuals or companies obtain patents but also enforce inventors’ rights if they are infringed upon. These various duties and responsibilities of patent attorneys aim to provide peace of mind for the client and their prospective invention as stated in https://vocal.media/journal/innovating-as-a-small-business article.

In the United States, both patent agents and patent attorneys have the same license to practice and represent clients. These attorneys have the ability to prepare, file claims, and prosecute patent applications.

What should you expect when you hire a patent lawyer?

First, he or she will interview you about your invention or idea. Then a search will be conducted to make sure a patent or trademark hasn’t already been issued for a similar product or service. The lawyer will then file the application and submit arguments supporting the case.

Business owners who aren’t sure their product or service is original can conduct a search for similar patents or trademarks before selecting a lawyer by heading over to the Patent and Trademark Office’s Web site at www.uspto.gov as discussed in https://www.glassdoor.com/Reviews/InventHelp-Reviews-E152162.htm article as well.

But even if a company finds that an idea has not been used before, it may not be worth the expense of hiring a lawyer, which can run between $5,000 and $15,000. If the idea isn’t going to be profitable, it might not be worth the trouble of the patent process.

An invention promotion firm can help a small business owner determine whether it’s worth the cost. Such companies evaluate products and ideas and let business owners know if the concepts can potentially make money as you can see from https://blogs.cornell.edu/react/inventhelp-taking-inventions-from-paper-to-the-global-marketplace-hinges-on-usp/.

There’s a difference between something being able to be patented and something being commercially valuable. If you decide that the patent or trademark process is right for your company, a patent lawyer will guide you through the rest.

Provisional Patent Application

Since June 1995, there has been a procedure in which inventors can file a provisional patent application at a somewhat lower cost than a regular “utility” application. The filing fee is lower and the preparation costs somewhat lower since the provisional application does not have to have patent claims.

The provisional application must be followed up by a corresponding utility patent application within 12 months after filing, or it becomes abandoned. It must have a sufficient description of how to make the invention; the same standard as a utility application must meet as well as patent drawings necessary to describe the invention as explained on https://kulturehub.com/inventhelp-support-inventors/.

The provisional patent application is of particular advantage when there is a need to have an application on file within a short period of time, but since the description should be as complete as possible, the savings over that obtained by filing a utility application may be minor.

The patent application process is complex and it is strongly advisable that applicants engage a patent attorney or agent to assist in obtaining useful patent protection. The patent process will typically take 2 to 3 years for a successful patent applicant. Learn more from https://twitter.com/inventhelp.

Patent on improvement

There are very few companies that will invest in a product that has not gone through a professional based patenting process. They are likely not to want to license a product like this, not to partner with inventors who use these methods or provide any development of such products. There are risks involved in this situation for them and they will not give you money for your invention unless a patent attorney has gone through the process with you.

The fact is, if you have an improvement to a product that is significant and considered unique enough, then you have the right to that patent. In fact, even if another company is marketing the existing product, your idea or invention cannot be in use by or marketed by them unless they have your permission to do so as you can read from https://www.techtimes.com/articles/249715/20200518/how-inventhelp-gets-new-inventors-onto-the-right-path.htm.

When can you use such a situation? For example, if you have an idea to improve product XYZ from ABC Company and they have the full license to the existing product and they are marketing it, your invention that in some way improves their product can be permissible. This is one of the best ways to get into a large invention contract even multibillion dollar companies cannot work against you if you have put in place a patent on your improvement to their product.

Of course, for this process to work, your patent must be valid and it should always be done by a professional, experienced patent attorney or patent agency as described on https://www.valuewalk.com/2020/05/medical-invention-covid-19/. In doing so, you insure that your patent is legally binding which helps to protect you from the company filing claims against you. The process can be lengthy, as any patent process is. But, a provisional patent can give you that patent pending protection that you need until you have ironed out the details and have your patent in hand. In many cases, this process is the fastest and safest way to protect your idea.

Do Use A Provisional Patent

There are some instances where you may be told not to use a provisional patent but instead to just get the permanent option. A provisional application for a patent is a process that you do want to go through. Here, you solve a quite unique problem that many individuals have who invent a product they are not sure will sell.

How can you take your patent away to show investors and to find out what it could sell for without spilling too much information that could cost you the rights to the product? This is what a provisional patent does for you.

It is important to know if your product has a commercial appeal to it. If it does not, you have two options: forget the product for good or instead make significant changes that will better enhance this functionality as you can watch on this channel – https://www.youtube.com/user/inventhelp.

If you have a provisional patent in place, the process for finding this information out is possible without over exposing the product or spending too much money on a patent that needs to change considerably later.

The use of provisional patents was not always an option. Prior to 1995, an inventor would have to build the invention on their own or they could get a patent (permanent application for a patent) before they could let anyone know about their product so that the product can be made as you can read from https://www.tmcnet.com/topics/articles/2020/03/24/444881-everything-need-know-inventhelp.htm.

In some situations, it is nearly impossible to build a working prototype of an invention without the required skills, resources and tools that you would need. The second problem with this is the cost of the patent application. You would need to have an attorney go through the patent process for you, which will cost you a lot of money.

Apply These Techniques To Get Patent

Meet with a patent professional, such as a registered patent agent or patent attorney, to discuss the right type of patent application for you. There are four types of patent applications available in the U.S.- provisional patent application, utility patent application, design patent application, and plant patent application. A patent professional can discuss the pros and cons of the four patent applications, and decide which type is best for you as you can read from https://www.jpost.com/Special-Content/Get-Your-Invention-Off-the-Ground-with-the-Support-of-InventHelp-624132.

A provisional patent application allows the inventor to file a document describing all aspects of their invention. A provisional patent application does not require claims and does not require a strict form, as is required for a utility patent application. The USPTO filing fees are significantly lower for a provisional patent application than other patent applications.

A provisional patent application may be preferred when the inventor requires extra time for experimentation, or money to invest in the invention. If you file a provisional patent application, you must file a regular utility patent application within one (1) year to claim the benefit of filing date of the provisional patent application filing date. A solid low cost law firm charges $1500 (plus USPTO $80 filing filing fee for a small entity) for preparation of a basic provisional patent application (which should include review and consultation with a patent attorney).

A regular patent application, also called a utility patent application, is appropriate when the invention performs a function. The invention must be new, useful and nonobvious. A utility patent application has a required formal format and contains claims which define the extent of your invention. It is recommended to utilize a patent professional when preparing and filing a utility patent application.

A decent cost from a low cost law firm is around $3500 (plus USPTO filing fee of $385 for a small entity) for the preparation of a basic utility patent application, including drafting claims. This includes consultation with a patent attorney that will review and file your utility patent application. More complicated inventions will require additional preparation as explained on https://spacecoastdaily.com/2020/03/inventhelp-the-way-forward-for-new-inventors/.

A design patent application is used to protect the ornamentation of a device. Choosing a design patent application may be the best way to protect how an item looks. You can get a design patent application prepared by a law firm for around $800 (plus $170 USPTO filing fee for a small entity) for the preparation and filing of a basic design patent application. This fee should include a discussion with a patent attorney who will review and file your patent application- and discuss the aspects of preparing your design patent application.

A plant patent application is for asexually reproducible plants.

Once a patent application has been filed, it is recommended to mark your invention as “patent pending.”

Taking Your Invention Idea from Patent Application to Industry

The American economies are driven by new products and inventions. That’s why US is the economic engine of the world. If you have an invention idea, then now is the time to protect your idea with a patent application before someone else does.

Where do I get a Patent Application?

You will likely want to fill out a patent application to begin the process of protecting your invention idea. The patent application system is designed to allow you to develop your invention idea into a marketable product and be protected from anyone stealing your idea and profiting from it. It’s worth your time to talk to professional patenting agency, such as InventHelp, you can trust who can help you write your patent application because a large percentage of patent applications are refused for a number of reasons.

The US Patent and Trademark Office may also refuse an application for the grant of a patent if the impugned invention does not meet the legal requirements for patents, i.e. is not distinct, non-obvious or having commercial significance.

Most notably being individuals who file patent applications on their own with little to no knowledge or experience on how the process works. To avoid this common mistake, reach out to patent professionals who can help you get started as you can read from https://blog.chron.com/frugalconfessions/2020/03/how-much-can-you-make-from-patenting-your-idea/.
