Technically, you can’t patent an idea for a business. For example, if you have a unique idea for an online store or a new chain of themed restaurants. However, you may be able to protect and patent a method of doing business and solving a problem– if it meets very specific patent criteria and patent requirements.

Irrespective whether the idea is small or big, the innovation can be protected by filing patents which is a form of intellectual property right.

FOR A SUCCESSFUL STARTUP BUSINESS VENTURE HAVE A PROPER INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY STRATEGY IN PLACE:

Patent a Business Idea

As an inventor, you can file a provisional patent application or a non-provisional patent application before the patent office in home country. As an innovator you can write provisional patent and file provisional patent application in a quick way to protect your invention if it is in the abstract / prototype stage.

The provisional patent application will establish an early patent filing date. But a patent will be issued only after a non-provisional application is filed for the same within an year of filing a provisional application with a complete set of patent claims.

UNIVERSAL INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY PATENT STRATEGY

YOUR invention “SHOULD ” be Novel, Non-Obvious and should have industrial technology application”

If your idea with proper elements fulfils all the patent requirements to apply for a patent, and there are no other previously filed patents claiming the same elements in the patent claims, then it’s time to apply for patent before the patent office.

Patent writing and patent filing work is intellectual in nature. Hire and select your patent attorney wisely. From a strategic business point it is advisable to seek legal counsel and patent advice before filing a patent and get patent professional involved for writing patent claims and file patent before the patent office.

Indian Patent filing & International Patent filing involves the following patenting steps:

  • Action Plan Strategy Step 1: Pen down your invention with as much detail as possible including drawings/ diagrams that explain the working or concept of invention.
  • Action Plan Strategy Step 2: Next step is to find out if the invention meets all the patentability step criteria for the country in which the patent application has to be filed.
  • Action Plan Strategy Step 3: Writing patent and drafting the provisional patent / non-provisional patent application with patents depending on the stage of your invention. If you are at the stage where you have complete information about your invention then you can directly go for complete specification.
  • Action Plan Strategy Step 4: Up on patent filing the complete patent specification along with application for patent, the patent application is published after 18 months of first patent filing date.
  • Action Plan Strategy Step 5: A patent request for examination is filed after which the patent application is examined by a patent examiner and the examiner issues a first examination report to the patent lawyer representing the patent client.
  • Action Plan Strategy Step 6: The inventor and patent professional create and send a response to the examination in order to clear all the objections of the patent examiner.
  • Action Plan Strategy Step 7: After all the patent objections are explained and the patent examiner is of the view that the patent can be granted for the invention a formal letter is issued to the patent inventor. The patent is granted by the patent office and is published in the patent journal.
