Provisional Patents Donít Exist
Posted on Monday, January 04, 2010 @ 22:30:46 GMT by vlad

Legal By David M. DeMay (inventorsdigest.com)

In the inventor community, many possess a limited understanding of the U.S. patent process.

One of the most common misunderstandings relates to the notion of a “provisional patent.” I’ve heard people say, “I have a provisional patent” or “I am protected because I have filed for a provisional patent.” Because of their misunderstanding of the process, many have unintentionally surrendered any patent rights they may have secured for their invention.

There is no such a thing as a provisional patent. There is, however, a provisional application for patent, which is just that – an application. It’s not a granted patent.

A provisional application for patent provides a way to establish an early priority date for a subsequently filed non-provisional application. Once you file a provisional application, you can use the term “patent pending.”

A quick primer: ...

And another related article via KeelyNet:

Even if you were to invent something earth-shattering, you would not make any money from of it if you left the invention on your desk. The only way you can turn a profit from it is by selling it and in order to achieve this, you have to inform people that it exists, that it is for sale and where they may get it from. In other words, you have to promote it.

The US Patents Office has issued thousands patents for products that never made it and many of those did not make it, not because they were not excellent ideas, but because their inventors did not know what to do with them. A business is more or less the same as a new invention. It has to be advertised, unless it is situated in the middle of the only street in town...

New Book Shows How to Get Inventions to Market After Filing a Patent (Score: 1)

CARDIFF, N.J., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Filing for a patent is one thing, getting a product into the market is the real challenge. In his new book Patent to Market Success author, Matthew Yubas ( www.ProductCoach.com [www.productcoach.com]) shows inventors and entrepreneurs a fresh, practical, and easy-to-understand guide for bringing an invention to market.

US Patent and Trademark Office data shows that over 60,000 patents are abandoned per year (more than 1,000 per week). Patents are abandoned when the inventor fails to pay the patent maintenance fees, which is typically due to a lack of market success. When an invention fails, inventors generally waste between $5,000 and $15,000 in patent filing and attorney fees, plus development and other marketing expenses.

"After filing for a patent, inventors are often confused about what to do next. As a result, they often fall into a variety traps and pitfalls. Patent to Market Success is the first book that not only shows an inventor what to do after filing a patent, but how to do it step-by-step. Anyone who has filed for a patent can benefit from the new strategies in this book," Yubas says...
