The Patenting Process

1. Patent Searches

The first stage to obtain a patent should always be to conduct searches to determine:

  • whether your invention is novel and inventive
  • what prior-art might exist in the marketplace that may pose an obstacle to your registration
  • determine if you are able to use your invention (after filing a patent application) without infringing others
  • determine the likelihood of obtaining grant of your Patent

     

2. Patent drafting and obtaining grant (prosecution)

The second stage of patenting is to use a Patent Attorney to draft your patent specification. Using a professional ensures:

  • the Patent claims are broad enough to capture immitators but not so broad that the Patent is not novel or inventive
  • the Patent conforms with the strict requirements of the Patents Act
  • the Patent captures the essence of your invention
  • objections raised by IP Australia can be easily overcome
