Utility Patent Intake Form

A patent can be described as a negative right in that it does not confer to the owner any affirmative right to practice the patented invention. Rather, a patent allows the owner to prevent others from making, using, selling, offering to sell, or importing the invention. Per statute, patentable subject matter includes processes, machines, manufactures, or compositions of matter, though colloquially it may include business methods and software inventions, albeit with certain qualifications.
