Title: Why does your provisional patent template look different from the other samples?
Post by: Amy on March 24, 2013, 08:18:23 PM
Just downloaded your free template from https://patentfile.org/free-provisional-patent-template/

The format looks different from the other samples and examples shown.  Which one is correct?

Hi,

There is no "proper" format for a provisional application so it really does not matter.  My template that you downloaded was setup to match a non-provisional application so that it will be easier when/if you decide to move onto a non-provisional.

The most important part of your provisional application is that you adequately describe in enough detail how to make and use your invention, not the formatting or look of the document.
