What is a Patent?
Patents are very different from trademarks. Patents protect an invention and give the patent owner the right to prevent others from making, using, or selling the invention or any part of the invention. Many late-night infomercials showcase creative inventions that individuals have created. However, before they ever brought their idea to a network for the infomercial, they would have had their idea patented so that no one else could profit from their hard work. Patent applications are somewhat complicated to complete, and should not be attempted without professional legal advice or expertise. However, there are reliable online sources and guides available to help you get the process going before you hire an attorney.
