Description

Everything you need to protect your invention now

The provisional patent application (PPA) is a quick, inexpensive, and legal way to claim your invention—and buy yourself time to determine whether it’s worthwhile to pursue a regular patent. Patent Pending in 24 Hours shows you how to:

  • conduct a patent search online
  • evaluate potential hurdles to patentability
  • prepare informal drawings
  • file your application, and
  • file a new PPA to reflect modifications

The 9th edition covers the latest implications of the “America Invents Act,” as well as recent revisions to patent rules and regulations. Thousands of people have used Patent Pending in 24 Hours successfully. You can too!

Includes key PPA-related forms: nondisclosure agreement, patent assignment, prototype-maker agreement, and joint-ownership agreement.
