Drafting a patent application:

Drafting a patent application By now you should be aware that the most essential factor associated with patent filing is the specifications of the invention mentioned in the draft. So, one must understand that drafting a patent application is a highly skilled and training driven job. Though you can do the writing of the specification from your end, yet a specialist is always recommended. This is mainly because a professional drafter has both technical as well as legal expertise, which is important when you compile the invention in question. As mentioned before cost of filing depends on the drafting of the application. So, if you go for a provisional patent , the costing will be less. But if you go for non-provisional/ regular patent the total costing goes up considerably. This is again based on the specification detailing done at the drafting level.

In the former case, the rate is fixed, but in the latter the fee varies based on the service provide selected by you. Let’s now focus on the statutory fees . This is dependent on the applicant of the patent. For example, the Indian Patent Office has divided this whole process into three parts, such as: Natural person (individual inventor only) Small Entity Others except small entity All rights reserved @ Inolyst 2014 | www.inolyst.com

Cost of patent filing When we talk about legal entities like an organization or company would come under the classification of small entity or others except small entity. Therefore, if a patent application has more than one inventor name it may not fall under the first category.

Next time you want to file a patent remember to plan your costing, since a start up mostly runs on a tight budget. All rights reserved @ Inolyst 2014 | www.inolyst.com
