(1) First think about the market prospects created, and then decide whether to apply for patents.
Since the application for patent pays the application fee and inspection fee, and maintains the annual fee and agency fee of patent, it is worth considering whether the patent applicant can bring economic benefits.
If it is predicted that patents will enter a larger market of products, or that patents can prevent the creation of competitors, the creation of competitors, and the scope of patent protection of enterprises will enter me, then patent application is the right and wise choice.
(2) More detailed investigation of the patent nature of the project being applied for shall be stopped.
The creation or application of new patents requires novelty and inventiveness. These requests are related to existing technologies, including patent literature at home and abroad, professional journals and designs, as well as the current application of technology industry in China. Therefore, it is necessary to stop a comprehensive investigation of existing technologies.
If the applicant does not want to invest too much time, spirit and money, the patent document should contain the latest technical materials at home and abroad, at least the patent document should be retrieved.
(3) Confidentiality shall be disclosed before application.
If they participate in the process of testing and evaluating the creation of internal and external personnel of the enterprise, they should request to sign a confidentiality agreement. If someone else leaks their content without consent, the applicant should submit a patent application that leaks after six months. Under the application of the contents of the first open technical meeting of the State Council or national academic conference or academic institution of the competent department concerned, the Chinese government should apply for patent application after six months in accordance with the rules of Article 24 of the Patent Law for the first time in an international exhibition sponsored or admitted by the government.
(4) Searching for experienced and serving agents.
Because you can't get the essential amendment after submitting the application, the application documents, especially the patent application, will not be able to compensate for the drawbacks that can not be written properly, and may even lead to the rejection of the patent.
In addition, if the request for the scope of patent protection is too small, write down some unnecessary technical features as the scope of protection for independent claims, and the competitors will prevent the patent from being very easy and not constituting infringement. If the scope of patent protection request is too large, it may be that the patent belongs to the scope of patent protection, others can not take it. Patents are granted, even if they are easily invalidated by competitors; and so on.
