What Is the Difference Between a Patent, Trademark or Copyright?

A patent is issued to the inventor (entity) as a grant that protects the right to exclude others from making, using, offering for sale, selling or importing their invention for 20 years. A trademark is the protection of a word, name, symbol, icon or device used to identify the source of goods or services (also called a servicemark) that lasts for 10 years with contingent 10 year renewal terms. A copyright is protection for authorship of published (or sometimes unpublished) literary, dramatic, musical, artistic and other intellectual property that basically lasts the life of the author plus 70 years.

Preparing & Filing U.S. Patent Application

The process for preparing a new application will begin with an initial consultation (in person or via the telephone). At this consultation, you will meet one-on-one with a registered Patent Attorney, who will personally draft your application. During the consultation, you and your attorney will discuss your invention in-depth so that the broadest possible coverage for your invention can be obtained. As all of our attorneys in Orlando & Tampa have advanced engineering degrees, you do not have to have a prototype or know exactly how to make the invention. You only must be able to describe what it does, and how it will work.

Upon the conclusion of the initial consultation, your attorney will prepare a complete draft application with any necessary drawings and schedule a time to review the draft with you (in person or via telephone) at no additional costs. Once you have approved the draft, and any necessary changes have been made, your application will be filed with the United States Patent Office, and you will be in a “PATENT PENDING” status.

Prior Art Patent Search

A prior search consists of a thorough investigation of patents and filed applications to determine whether your invention is different from existing inventions. Upon the conclusion of this search, we will send you a detailed report of our findings, which will include copies of relevant patents and/or applications for your review. Once you receive our search report, you will be given a complimentary legal consultation with a Registered U.S. Patent Attorney who will discuss your search results and advise you concerning the next step in the process of preparing your application.

Patent Prosecution

After reviewing your filed application, the USPTO may issue an office action in which additional information is requested by the Patent Examiner assigned to your application. These inquiries will be directed to our office and you will be completely informed of all developments and communications throughout the process. In some cases, we may conduct a telephone or personal meeting with the Examiner on an “as-needed basis”. When your application is approved by the U.S. Patent Office, a Notice of Allowance will be issued,and upon payment of the required fees you will be issued a United States Registered Patent.

International Patents

Although there is no such thing as a true “International Patent”, filing an application under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) offers applicants the ability to preserve the opportunity to obtain a patent in any, or all, of the PCT-member countries (over 133) for up to 36 months.

Preparation U.S. Trademark Application

We will prepare and file your Trademark Application with the United States Trademark Office. We will ensure that your application satisfies all legal requirements of the Trademark Office and has the best chance of being allowed.

Trademark Searches

Similar to the patent search described above, a comprehensive trademark search should be performed to identify any existing marks and pending applications, including Federal, State, Common Law, and Worldwide. Federal marks are registered with the Trademark Office in Arlington, Virginia. State-filed marks are registered with a particular state, and common law trademarks are marks that are in use, but are not registered with the states or federal government.

A thorough search of these marks is necessary to avoid the possibility of infringement, or rejection of your mark by the Trademark Office. Once we have completed our search, we will send you a detailed search report explaining our findings and recommending the appropriate steps to take next. Once you have received our search report, you will be given a legal consultation with one of our attorneys in Orlando or Tampa who will answer all questions and advise you whether to take the next step in preparing and filing your application.

Trademark Prosecution

We will communicate with, and respond to inquiries from the Examiner assigned to your application. If necessary, we can also conduct a telephone or personal interview with the Examiner on an “as-needed basis”. You will be completely informed of all developments and communications throughout the process. As your locally-based Orlando & Tampa Patent Attorneys, we are dedicated to working diligently for you.

Copyright Registration

Our Copyright Attorneys in Orlando & Tampa will file your original works of authorship with the United States Copyright Office. Upon successful filing, you can use the © symbol to indicate that these literary, dramatic, musical, artistic and other works have been registered and are considered to be legally protected under the appropriate legal provisions.
