PatentFile Website Questions and Reviews / Duration to get patent
« on: June 14, 2014, 12:47:06 PM »
Attached with this posting is a patent document - US8744745B2. Lets assume I have translated my idea into a document similar - in terms of content description, depth, structure and organization - to the US8744745B2. If I give my document to you:

Questions:
1. How long does it take to get a patent?
2. What will be the fee associated with getting a patent through your organization?
3. Does your organization provide any other services such as, coming up with CAD drawings?

PS: I couldn't attach my document because of the size. One can easily get the document by following the following steps:
1. In google search type : "google patents"
2. Click on the google patents link
3. Type the patent number: US8744745B2

Patent Questions and Advice / The possibility of getting a lawyers notice
« on: January 15, 2014, 08:21:45 PM »
What happens in the following scenario:

I develop the software from scratch. I use it, I make millions of dollars and later after 3-5 years of releasing the product, I realize that someone actually holds a patent for what ever I have used in my product and I have made a lot of money?

Questions:
1. Will there be a notice to stop using the product? Or will there be a direct legal action ?
2. What will be the nature of the warning?
3. If in case there is a penalty, is it tied to the amount of profit I have made or is it a fixed amount independent of the amount of profit I have made?

Thank you

1. What if I don't come up with the actual patent within 12 months from provisional patent application date?
1a. I know I will have to complete actual patent application. How much money will I loose during the non-provisional patent application process?
1b. Assume I don't have the actual product within the 12 month period and I end up paying the fee associated with the non-provisional application. What next? Can I still work on my idea?
1c. Is there any limitation on the number of provisional patents I can file for the same idea (please address both the cases : 1. before 12 months window, and 2: after I have crossed the 12 months period)

Patent Questions and Advice / Provisional Patent Application question
« on: December 16, 2013, 09:48:04 PM »
Question:

Provisional patents are incomplete. Yes, they allow us to take the idea into the market with the label "Patent Pending"; what if another person comes up with the actual complete working patent (may be with slight improvements) and patents the product? I ask because, the Patent office will not review the provisional patent application unless I file a non-provisional patent application, this means they have no way of knowing whether the actual patent filed by the other person is unique. And, since the patent office hasn't looked at my idea yet (because of its provisional status), they have no way of knowing if my idea is copied in the patent applications. How do I protect my idea when it has the label "Patent Pending"?
