DO NOT PAY $200 TO $400 PER HOUR TO A LARGE LAW FIRM OR ANY PATENT LAWYER FOR THAT REASON. EXPERIENCE COUNTS! SEE THE BELOW
DO NOT PAY THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TO AN INVENTION MARKETING COMPANY. HOW MANY TIMES HAVE THEY REFUNDED MONEY FOR FAILED PROMISES? DID THEY MENTION HOW MANY INVENTIONS ACTUALLY MADE MONEY FOR THE INVENTORS?
WHY GO TO A PATENT AGENT? DO THEY CHARGE AS MUCH AS PATENT ATTORNEYS? COMPARE PRICES. WHY DO YOU THINK LAW FIRMS AND COMPANIES HIRE PATENT AGENTS? IF YOU NEED LEGAL ADVISE THEY CAN NOT GIVE IT. THEY ARE NOT ATTORNEYS. PERIOD.
NO CHARGE FOR TELEPHONE CALLS TO AND FROM INVENTORS AT ANY TIME, WHAT OTHER FIRM OFFERS THIS.!!!!
THE FOLLOWING FEES ARE ONLY EXAMPLES UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE
INVENTION SEARCH: Would you have an operation without an x-ray? Absolutely not! So do not pay for a patent application without a search. Certainly do not pay an invention marketing company for a term paper on your invention without a search. Why would a firm not mention this or even discourage its use? Because the invention is either already patented or has a very limited scope based on relevant patents. ATLO will conduct a limited search of the USPTO database to find relevant patents, with analysis to determine patentability, and a report. The cost of the search is $250 to $500. Additional databases may be searched or an extended search, but at additional costs. This cost will be deducted from the patent application fee if prepared by this office. Call the above number or email. No charge for initial consultation. The USPTO does not require a search of any art. Again, why pay $3,000 or more for a patent application on top of the $400 filing fee (min. fee for micro-entity with electronic filing) at the USPTO without a search. Your invention may be already patented and in the files at the USPTO, AND THEY WILL NOT TELL YOU ABOUT THIS UNTIL YOU PAY THEIR FILING FEES.
PROVISIONAL PATENT APPLICATION: a professional fee of from about $500 to about
$1,500 for a Provisional Patent Application with a search of the USPTO
electronic searchable patents. See above. Informal drawings may be submitted.
Claims may be included. This does not include filing fee to the USPTO, drafting costs, mailing costs, and administrative processing. This filing will avoid any prior art occurring within one year of the filing date if the invention is properly described. See the notice below. Preparation fee credited toward regular patent application if prepared by this office. No charge for consultation. Please call the above phone number for initial consultation. (Don't let a law firm try to convince you to pay for a regular patent application and call it a provisional just to hook you. Why pay twice for the same work?)
UTILITY PATENT APPLICATION: typical
patent applications range in cost from $1,500 to $5,000. This depends on several factors such as the complexity of the invention and the technology area. This includes a search of the USPTO electronic searchable patents if the patent application is prepared by this office. See above comments on search. This does not include filing fee to the USPTO, drafting costs, and mailing costs. The utility patent is directed at the functional features of the invention; how it works, basically. Get quality work for a reasonable price. No charge for consultation. Please call the above phone number for initial consultation. FOR A LIMITED TIME, PATENT APPLICATION FEE IS $1,495 AND THAT INCLUDES SEARCH.
DESIGN PATENT APPLICATION: a
professional fee from about $500 to about $1,000 for a design patent application. This does not include filing fee to the USPTO, drafting costs, and mailing costs. This patent is only directed at the decorative features of the invention. Please call the above phone number for free initial consultation.
PATENT DRAFTING: Patent
drawings are typically $50 per figure. Perspective
drawings have an additional charge. Drawings done by an outside drafting source may be required for complex drawings. Due to changes in the examination process, informal drawings, such as hand drawings, are not acceptable to the USPTO unless they meet essentially the same standards for publication even if the inventor has requested no publication. Publication of the invention requires an additional payment of $300.00 in addition to the fee to obtain an issued patent by small entity inventors, typically private inventors.
Notice Regarding Bars to Obtaing Patent: (See 35 USC 102) It is important that you talk to a patent attorney regarding your invention. If your invention was "described in a printed publication ... or in public use or on sale in this country, more than one year prior to the date of the application... " you may be barred from obtaining a patent. There are exceptions to every rule so it is important to talk to your patent attorney regarding the status of your invention. For example, the filing of a provisional patent application stops this clock if the invention is properly described. You must act or you might lose your rights to a patent.
