Why Should I get Trademark Protection?


After a patent application is filed, the class and subclass of your invention are determined and it is assigned to an examiner who works in that class and subclass. Your application is therefore placed on the, quote, bottom of the examiner’s pile of work, meaning that he or she will get to it in turn after the application is filed. Your attorney can obtain an estimate of when the examiner will get to it and perform his or her search, even if the patent attorney had supplied the examiner with your search result. It is not unusual for a delay of one year or longer to occur. If you have more questions, we suggest consulting with an experienced patent attorney.
