What is a Patent?
A patent is a right to exclude others from practicing your invention. It is not a right to practice, as misunderstood by many. The United States government grants property right (upto 20 years Monopoly) to an inventor for sharing their ideas with public. In essence a patent is right â€œto exclude others from making, using, offering for sale, or selling the invention throughout the United States or importing the invention into the United Statesfor a limited time in exchange for public disclosure of the invention when the patent is granted.
What is a difference between a design patent and a utility patent?
In general rooms, a utility patent protects the way an article is used and works, while a design patent protects the way an article looks. The ornamental appearance for an article includes its shape, configuration or surface ornamentation. Both design and utility patents may be obtained on an article if invention resides both in its utility and ornamental appearance.
The list below is non-exhaustive, but a short overview of the differences between the "utility patents" and "design patents"
(A) Generally, the term of a utility patent is 20 years from filing date; while the term of a design patent is 14 years measured from the date of grant.
(B) Maintenance fees are required for utility patents, while no maintenance fees are required for design patents.
(C) Design patent applications include only a single claim, while utility patent applications can have multiple claims.
