- What cannot be patented?
Any laws of nature, physical phenomena, abstract ideas, literary, dramatic, musical, and artistic works (these can be Copyright protected), & inventions which are not useful (such as perpetual motion machines); or offensive to public morality, falls outside the domain of patent protection.
- I have a provisional patent. Do I need to file for a non-provisional patent?
A provisional patent application doesn’t issue a patent. You will be granted a pending patent status, after which further procedures have to be done in order to move from a pending stage to a full issuance of the patent. The sole purpose of a provisional patent is to give a filing date to the applicant who can later use that to claim priority during the formal non-provisional application.
- Is there a deadline for filing a non-provisional patent?
To claim the benefits of a provisional patent application, a non-provisional patent must be drafted with the USPTO within one year of the original provisional filing date, or the benefit is lost.
