When any individual or company invents anything new, then protecting that particular idea or product or service becomes one of the most important tasks. We usually safeguard any new invention with the help of patent work. Protecting new idea or product or service with the help of legal means safeguards the invention from getting copied or stolen by any individual or company. This kind of patenting work protects different types of business methods, computer programs, new processes and compound and new chemical etc. We can find two types of applications in the patent:
Utility Application: it is found to be known as the regular patent. We need to explain about the idea, service or product with the help of words or drawings. This kind of patenting work safeguards the structure or function of any newly invented product, service or idea. When we fill up the application form, we need to mention certain features like, transmittal form, data sheet, fee form, application fees, along with the drawings and specifications of the freshly invented service, idea or product. We also need to hire specialized lawyer to do this kind of work. In that case, complete description about the new invention is highly required. After we complete this step, it is very much necessary that we should include the drawing of the idea, service or product. Different steps, set by the Government, are required to be followed, so that we can complete the task. In that regards, certain stipulated guidelines should be followed like, color, size, type and condition of the paper used. In case of transmittal form, different detailed information about the documents including the patent filing package should be found there.
Provisional Application: when we talk about provisional application, we should know that it is never the part of any patenting work. In many cases, this kind of work does not have to go through any type of examination process. When it is the matter of utility application, then the examination process is found to be very much important. This type of patenting work is found to be registered with the United States Patent and Trademark office. In that matter, it is very much imperative to safeguard the early patent filing date for the follow-up application. This type of patenting work can be used to protect patent-barring disclosures. This type of patenting work is used to get the ultimate benefit from the utility patent.
