Why is a patent search important?

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.

Provisional Patent Application

After the search: Provisional Patent Application

Once you receive your patent search report, determine if you will proceed with a patent application. Increase your invention's patentability by adding to it and working around other inventions found in the search before applying for the patent application.
A provisional patent application allows you to temporarily file your patent application for 12 months.
