New and useful inventions can be protected by U.S Patent. Professional assistance from a patent attorney is strongly urged because procedures are detailed and technical. A patent search is performed to see if a patent currently exists on the same or nearly the same device and , if not, to make proper application with the Patent Office.


* Note / Only attorneys and agents registered with the U.S Patent Office may represent investors in related matters. Only these agents may perform patent searches in the patent office.
