Frequently Asked Questions
Below are a few frequently asked questions about patent law.
A patent refers to the intellectual property rights to an invention or new discovery that is useful, novel, or not obvious. There are 3 types of patents:
- Utility patent: Applies to inventions for processes, machines, and matter composition. It protects the way something works, as opposed to the way something looks, like a part in a machine or a computer.
- Design patent: Protects the physical appearance of a good, as opposed to its functionality. The line between a design and utility patent often blurs, as modern manufacturing often sees products containing aspects of both.
- Plant utility: Protects the invention or discovery of an asexually reproducible plant that is distinct and new.
A patent attorney can help you determine which type of patent application you need to submit.
