What is a patent and how can I obtain one?
A patent grants the right to exclude others from making, using, offering for sale, or selling an invention in the United States. It also grants the right to exclude importing the invention into the United States.
In most cases, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office requires inventors of mechanical devices to file mechanical illustrations specifying the precise placement of gears, levers, pulleys, and other functional aspects of the device. Each of the moving parts must be clearly shown and labeled in a way that comports with the standards developed by the USPTO. NAJAFI LAW, P.A. is highly familiar with the technical aspects of filing patent applications for mechanical devices. Our Jacksonville, Florida law office looks forward to assisting you with your case and helping you create adequate mechanical drawings illustrating the novel features of your invention.
