What is a Regular Patent Application
A non provisional or utility patent is a US application that meets all the requirements of patentability set forth by the US Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO). Patents in the US generally have a term of 20 years from the date on which the earliest application for the patent was filed. The written document of a non provisional patent comprises a specification, which includes a title, technical field, background, brief summary, brief description of the drawings, detailed description of the preferred and selected alternate embodiments, one or more claims, an abstract, and one or more formal drawings of the invention. The drawings must show every feature of the invention specified in the claims. Regular patents are examined by an Examiner at the USPTO, which take at least 18 months. The regular patent provides the inventor with an application for patent having a priority date and “patent pending” status.
