Electronic Patent Filing
Filing for Patents Online
In the past, filing a patent frequently became a tedious and complex process. This has changed, now that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has begun accepting patent applications electronically. The USPTO has even added an incentive to filing electronically by giving patent attorneys and agents a discount when they file through the organization's website. The entire process takes only a few minutes, and many safeguards have been employed by the USPTO to ensure that people are made aware of any problems with their applications before they actually submit them.
Electronic patent filing provides the same legal protections afforded to those who file a paper-based applications. Once the application has been filed through the USPTO's website, almost all other correspondence regarding the patent can also be sent electronically, ensuring that the intellectual property remains protected. The filing can now be done from anywhere in the world, making visits to the patent office no longer necessary. If you need to file a patent, a Tacoma intellectual property lawyer can file electronically on your behalf, and address any issues that might otherwise slow down the process.
