Intellectual Property

To fully protect a product apply for a Federal patent.

You’ve invested time, talent, and energy into developing a winning invention. Now it’s time to make sure it’s protected. Whether you’re looking to file a Provisional Application for Patent, Utility Patent, or Design Patent, Millennium can help. Best of all, filing a patent application through Millennium is easy and inexpensive. Just answer a few questions online and we’ll take care of the rest.

Filing a Provisional Application for Patent is one of the fastest, easiest ways to start protecting your invention. You’ll receive an immediate priority filing date from the US Patent and Trademark Office and enjoy the immediate right to label your invention “patent pending.” Provisional Application for Patent: The review process for a utility patent typically takes up to 3 years, or even more. But to help inventors begin protecting their inventions sooner, the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) offers a faster, more affordable option called a Provisional Application for Patent.

Conducting a patent search is a smart first step before investing a lot of time and money into the patent process. Not only will you know if there are any similar patents in the “prior art,” you’ll be able to use the results to better define your invention.

A Provisional Application grants you an immediate priority filing date. Once your Provisional Application is received by the USPTO, you have the right to label your invention “patent pending” for 12 months. Most importantly, you can later (within 12 months) file a Non-Provisional Utility Patent Application that claims your original priority filing date (the date that the USPTO received your Provisional Application for Patent).

Design Patents: As the name suggests, design patents protect purely artistic or ornamental designs of and for manufactured items. These are designs that do not affect the function of the manufactured item. Examples include an ornamental face plate for a watch or unique design for an office chair.

We can help create and protect your intellectual property ideas by filing a Patent Application with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office

A patent is an intellectual property right granted by the Government of the United States of America to an inventor “to exclude others from making, using, offering for sale, or selling the invention throughout the United States or importing the invention into the United States” for a limited time in exchange for public disclosure of the invention when the patent is granted.

There are three types of patents. Utility patents may be granted to anyone who invents or discovers any new and useful process, machine, article of manufacture, or composition of matter, or any new and useful improvement thereof. Here is the process for obtaining a utility patent. Design patents may be granted to anyone who invents a new, original, and ornamental design for an article of manufacture. Plant patents may be granted to anyone who invents or discovers and asexually reproduces any distinct and new variety of plant.

Millennium Patent analysis benefits our clients in two ways: (1) it allows us to break the traditional Federal and State Trademark and Common Law Research (first use) searches for a Step-By-Step approach AND (2) you will not need to take your research to an attorney for review. Exact conflicts are simple to find. Less expensive preliminary searches are good at finding conflicts. Strong similarities however, based on similarity of sound, appearance and meaning are much more difficult to uncover. Strong similarities are very easy to either over react or under react to. The predominance of our client’s patent and trade name searches are legally blocked at the strong similarity level, not by conflicts. Research experts at Millennium are trained to conduct and analyze each search. Low Cost analysis is the main reason you should use Millennium for all of your comprehensive research needs. The Research Analysis is not included as a feature of our Value Package.

Our Comprehensive legal research starts with the researching of billions of patent and name records to find those that may legally affect your intended commercial use. Direct conflicts or merely uses which are merely similar in Sound, Appearance or Meaning are fully analyzed by our expert staff. Analysis by experienced research specialists will save you time and money in finding a legally clear name. Our free analysis benefit alone may save you hundreds of dollars in unnecessary search fees and trademark attorney time.
