What is a Provisional Patent
Provisional applications are US patent applications for a patent which do not mature into an issued patent (i.e., they are not examined by the USPTO) unless further steps are taken by the applicant within twelve (12) months of filing the provisional application. Such applications are designed to provide lower cost and less formal application for patent by reducing the formal requirements, such as, not requiring formal drawings, claims, oath and declarations, or an information disclosure statement. However, if drafted properly (adequate technical written description and figures or pictures showing elements and parts of the Invention) this temporary patent application provides the inventor with an application for patent having a priority date and “patent pending” status.
Note a provisional must be converted to a non-provisional application within one year of the filing date to maintain priority based on the provisional filing. Failure to file the non-provisional could result in loss of patent rights, including a complete bar to obtaining a patent.
