VABANC and Procopio Present: A Look Inside the USPTO – The Realities of Obtaining and Enforcing Patents
After spending hours (and thousands of dollars) with your attorney getting a patent application ready to file, the process is only beginning. The application is submitted to the USPTO, which determines whether to allow any of the requested claims. Do you know how the USPTO conducts the critical process of examining patent applications and decides which claims to allow? Once allowed, the patent claims can be enforced against infringers. Do you know the options available for enforcing a patent and how those options really work? We will provide insights to help you navigate through the USPTO to obtain a quality patent and steer that patent through the enforcement thicket.
