Chapter 9: After the Application Is Filed

Filing your first patent application in the United States Patent and Trademark Office can be very exciting! At this point, most inventors are filled with a sense of possibility and anticipation.

In this chapter, we will discuss what your filing means, what to expect, and some things you may want to consider after your patent application is filed.

In sum, after your application is filed:

  • Your idea will have patent pending status.
  • You can expect a response from the Patent Office (if you filed a utility or design application).
  • You should consider whether to file for patents in foreign countries and whether to file additional patent applications in the United States.

Here’s What You’ll Learn In This Chapter:

  • Patent Pending Status
  • Expect a Response from the Patent Office
  • Understanding the Different Types of Rejections  in Your Office Action
  • Consider Filing Other Patent Applications  for the Same Product
  • Post-Grant Review
  • Foreign Patenting
