When do I need to file for a patent?
When it comes to patents, the sooner, the better. As the inventor and creator, you have the right to file a patent or trademark for your creation. However, to get the rights afforded by a United States patent, you need to meet certain deadlines. From the first time you reveal your invention to the public through advertising, sale, or demonstration, you have one year to file a patent. Because these terms are so broad, you should assume that once you have shown the invention to another person other than for research, you have one year to file. By sharing your invention with a Utah patent attorney from MOC, P.C., you can ensure that your patent will be filed in due time to receive legal protection.
