Establish your “First to Invent” Date
Filing a patent application for an invention idea is an essential step to protecting your intellectual property rights to your invention idea. Working with a professional patenting agency like InventHelp, to properly file your patent application can give you the power to prevent others from making or selling your invention idea.
The patent application needs to be filed with the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office). While it is true that you can file the patent application on your own, we would not recommend this option.
This route should especially be avoided by an individual with no IP experience. It’s not for the feint at heart. A patent application is a very important document and the patent application process is a slow process.
What is a Patent Application?
A Patent Application is the initial version of an invention which is submitted to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The Patent Application consists of all the information which will eventually become a full United States Patent after being reviewed by the USPTO as you can read from https://blog.chron.com/frugalconfessions/2020/03/how-much-can-you-make-from-patenting-your-idea/.
The Application consists of several parts which describe the invention in full. The first part of the Application is the Abstract, which briefly describes the parts and purposes of the invention and some other basic information.
