For many businesses, a strong patent portfolio provides a significant competitive advantage. Under the U.S. Patent Act (35 U.S. Code) inventors must submit a patent application to the United States Patent and Trademark Office where it will be reviewed by an examiner to determine if the invention is patentable. If issued, U.S. law grants patentees the right to exclude others from making, using, or selling the invention.
The U.S. Patent Act states that processes, machines, articles of manufacture, and compositions of matter are patentable subject matters.
Protection of patents includes strict compliance with filing deadlines and confidentiality requirements during early stages of invention, in addition to analysis of the scope of the invention. The statutory bar of timely filing a patent application in the U.S. can be unforgiving, and vary in international countries. Unintentional public disclosure of an invention without a confidentiality agreement may result in a complete loss of patent rights.
