Patent Attorney and Founder

So why is patenting so important? Well, it’s because you, the inventor, have come up with something first of its kind ever in the world, and the US and many countries around the world want to reward you for your innovation. You deserve to get rewarded, believe it or not, for coming up with something unique and novel and explaining how to do it. You get 20 years of monopoly here in the United States, and for design patents, 15 years. That’s more than enough time to carve your niche and to make money and reward yourself for making that major step forward for all of us.

So, on behalf of you and the inventors around the world, go get your patent filed today. Go big, go bold.
