OBTAINING A PATENT IS A DELICATE BALANCING ACT


One of the main comments we hear from potential and current clients new to the patent system is the urgency to just get a patent, any patent, and as soon as possible. However, it's important for inventors to understand that obtaining a patent can be a balancing act and requires patience to ultimately to get a strong patent issued that is broad enough in scope but narrow enough to overcome the prior art and potential validity challenges. On one hand, you need enough specificity in the claims of your patent application to help overcome prior art references, and on the other hand you don't want to be too specific in the claims such that others can easily work-around the claims of the patent. Hence, the balancing act is comprised of finding a middle ground to what the Examiner at the USPTO will find to be patentable and what the inventor is willing to give up as to the scope of their patent. According to some patent professionals and patent issuance statistics, the odds of obtaining a patent are generally about 70%. Given these favorable odds, an inventor's goals should not be to obtain just any patent, but one that captures the essence of the invention, and is strong, enforceable, and can withstand validity challenges.
