On its most basic level, intellectual property law exists to help inventors protect their ideas from being stolen, and perhaps to make money off those ideas, as well. While this may be true in theory, in actual execution, intellectual property law is not always so straightforward. A recent Washington Times article notes that intellectual property laws are not always as helpful to inventors and creators as they are supposed to be. For one thing, the article notes, inventors often have a difficult time discerning whether a trademark, a copyright, or a proper patent is the best option for their invention or idea. Furthermore, the Times article notes that “intellectual property laws are federal laws,” which makes them subject to interpretation. All of this can seem daunting to novice inventors, but a company called Patent Assistance Worldwide is seeking to make things easier for them.
Patent Assistance Worldwide has issued a press statement, responding to the Washington Times article. Company spokesman Mark Fallows says the article drives home exactly how vexing intellectual property law can be. “If you’re come up with a unique or potentially lucrative idea, the odds are that you want to protect it and maintain the rights to it. You may even wish to market it and make money from your bright idea,” notes Fallows. “However, intellectual property law is a minefield, and navigating it can prove extraordinarily difficult for the novice, something this article makes clear.
Fallows says that a patent attorney can provide immense help, but these legal services are often too pricy for novice inventors. “That’s where Patent Assistance Worldwide comes in,” Fallows enthuses. “While going to a traditional legal firm can often prove completely impossible for new inventors, our company is able to put inventors in touch with top patent attorneys, and often secure discounted rates, as well.”
Fallows notes that Patent Assistance Worldwide is not a legal firm, and does not offer any legal guidance on its own. “Our company is more like a clearinghouse of services, all aimed at inventors,” he explains. “What this means is that we have access to a remarkable network of patent attorneys, and we can help inventors find the best, most affordable fit.”
The clearinghouse approach of Patent Assistance Worldwide is not limited to legal services. Fallows notes that the company also provides access to patent researchers and illustrators, as well as marketing professionals. “We want to help inventors protect and ultimately monetize their brilliant ideas,” Fallows concludes. “That’s a tall order, for novice inventors, but Patent Assistance Worldwide seeks to make the process much easier.”
Patent Assistance Worldwide is a clearinghouse of services geared toward inventors seeking to protect or market their intellectual property. The company places clients in touch with professional illustrators, patent researchers, and patent attorneys, and typically offers inventors more affordable rates than traditional legal firms can offer.
