You’ve come up with your million-dollar idea and you want to patent it. What should you do?
Start brainstorming. What are some variations on your invention? What materials can you make it out of? Can you configure it in a different way? Now test some of these varieties out.
Putting variety in your patent disclosure is important because it will allow your patent attorney to capture the full scope of your invention. If you’ve only thought of one configuration, you can only obtain a patent that covers that one configuration.
Meanwhile if you’ve thought of several variations, you’ll be entitled to a broader patent – assuming that your invention is still otherwise patentable.
So, get out your yellow pad of paper, start brainstorming, and call us today.
