What Is A Patent Opinion?

A patentability opinion is an analysis of potential patent claims done by a qualified patent attorney. Getting this opinion from a registered patent attorney can help an individual or company decide if they should proceed with the patent process. It’s a cost-effective way to make an informed decision, compared to investing in preparing, filing, and prosecuting a patent application without researching existing patents and patent applications that are publicly available.

What Does A Patentability Opinion Cover?

A patent attorney creates a report to assess whether the invention meets the standards set by the U.S. Patent and Trademarks Office (USPTO) for patent eligibility. These standards include novelty, usefulness, and non-obviousness. Thus, the patentability opinion reviews whether the invention meets all or some of these requirements.

Existing Prior Art That Could Be Of Concern

A patentability opinion considers prior art that could be of relevance. It looks for all sources of information related to the invention, including documents such as patents, articles, and other publicly available materials.

The Potential Viability Of Your Invention

The patentability opinion provides an assessment of whether the invention is likely to meet the requirements for a patent and how strong its protection would be. It also examines potential legal issues that could arise if someone else patented the same or a similar invention. Lastly, it includes suggestions on how to strengthen the patent application if necessary.

Ways To Improve The Claim Of Your Existing Patent

The patentability opinion also includes advice on how to improve the claims of a potential patent. This could include making them more specific, adding additional features, or modifying certain elements. The attorney might suggest amending the claim to make it more likely to be accepted by the USPTO.
