Your Invention Is Our Priority
Patent law is the branch of intellectual property law that deals with new inventions. Traditional patents protect tangible scientific inventions, such as circuit boards, car engines, heating coils, or zippers. However, over time patents have been used to protect a broader variety of inventions such as coding algorithms, business practices, or genetically modified organisms.
In general, a patent can be granted if an invention is:
● not a natural object or process;
● useful; and
● not obvious.
Let the team at Verna Law help you protect your inventions and patents from applications to licenses to litigation.
