What is a Provisional Patent:

  • Provisional Application is a temporary US patent application that last for a year, which does not mature into an issued US patent (not examined by the USPTO) unless further steps are taken by the applicant within twelve (12) months of filing the provisional application. You are patent pending and free to disclose, market , and sell the invention during this time period.  Such applications are designed to provide lower cost first patent filing by reducing the formal requirements, such as, not requiring formal drawings, claims, oath and declarations, or an information disclosure statement. However, if drafted properly (adequate technical written description and figures) the provisional application provides the inventor with an application priority date and “patent pending” status. Note a provisional application must be converted to a non-provisional application within one year of the filing date to maintain priority based on the provisional filing.  Failure to file the non-provisional could result in loss of US patent rights, including a complete bar to obtaining a patent. Provisionals are NOT examined by an Examiner at the USPTO.
