Should I request a patent search?

It's the first step before a patent application! First, you learn how patentable your invention may be. If it's not very patentable, don't waste time and money on a patent app. Second, it may help you increase your patentability. By seeing what is similar, you can improve your invention around other existing invention and increase patentability.

Q & A about Utility Patents

Q What is a Utility Patent?
A A utility patent protects an invention’s function or process - what the invention does and how it does it.
Q Utility vs. Provisional Patents
A If you are certain you want to try and obtain 20 years of patent protection and the needed monetary capital is available, you may want to skip the provisional patent and go directly to the utility patent application.

Otherwise, you would file a provisional patent to temporarily lock in your invention date for 12 months. Within this 12 months, you would pitch the idea to companies and investors or sell the invention to test the market. You can make the decision as to whether or not you want to follow-up with the full utility patent within the 12 months or simply let your provisional patent expire.
