What are fundamental steps of patented process in invention?

Do you have a talent or "great" ideas that you would like to put into practice, but are you afraid that someone is doing the same thing as you? Undoubtedly, that is the "terror" of many digital entrepreneurs: that someone copies their ideas!

That is why, if you have been postponing your dream due to that reason, calm down, because you can register your invention to obtain the protection for the right of patents.

That you did not know?

Well, that's what we'll talk about in this post, showing you what you need to know to register, or patent, your invention! First of all, you have to know that ideas as such are not patentable and that you find out through the requirements of patentability. Of course, these conditions change depending on the country where you are, so in this post, we will offer you the main fundamental steps of the patented process.

1. Make sure your idea is not already registered

First, answer the following questions:

• Do the modifications that I have been making in my (product, machine, and process) improve what I do or is there in the market?

• Do the best ones that I have put into practice solve technical problems of operation, use, efficiency, and costs?

Then, perform the following steps to find out if it is possible to patent your invention:

• Identification of the characteristics of the invention

• Drafting of a patent document

• Presentation of the application before the responsible entity

2. Make a patent application

It is important to submit the application before publicly disclosing the details of the invention ideas , because, in general, all inventions published before the application can be considered as part of the state of the art.

In countries where the definition applies, public disclosure would prevent patented as it violates the novelty requirement. However, in some countries, there is a grace period, usually from 6 to 12 months.

In addition, you also have to verify the documents you must submit. That part is quite important because it implies:

• Application duly completed and signed, in four copies.

• Proof of payment of the fee. Original and 2 copies.

• Description of the invention.

• Claims.

• Technical drawing (s), if applicable.

• Summary of the description of the invention.

3. Wait for the publication of your application

After having entered the formal patent application, you have submitted the documents and paid the patent deposit, you should only wait for the publication of your application.

4. Request your patent application exam

Even if your project has gone through the previous process, you still do not have the patent. You need to ask for the patent exam from a patent examiner who will evaluate your idea. At that time other people can answer the patent of your idea and present evidence against the registration.

5. Do not forget to pay annual fees

In addition to the official filing fees that apply in each country, after the patent office grants the same, maintenance or renewal fees have to be paid, usually once a year, in order to keep the patent in force.

Normally, payments are made before the corresponding annual period begins. The due date for the payment corresponds to the anniversary of the date of presentation of the patent application.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Netflix

"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.
