Are you ready for the race to the Patent Office with the new first-to-file patent law? PowerPatent's software helps inventors and company with the transition from a "first to invent" patent system to a "first inventor to file" patent system on March 16, 2013.

PowerPatent develops tools that provide a cost-efficient framework for inventors to participate in the IP system and be recognized and rewarded for their ingenuity.

From March 16 forward, it will be more important than ever to race to the Patent Office with high quality patent applications. Software from PowerPatent can help you with being first to file.

On or after March 16, 2013, the first inventor to file a patent application for an invention will be awarded the patent even if another invented it first. In competitive industries, this creates pressure to file patent applications earlier than previously required since being first to make an invention no long matters. When the law changes on March 16, when two inventors have invented the same thing, the U.S. Patent will belong to the inventor that wins the race to file in the Patent Office.

PowerPatent's new patent workflow tool, ProvisionalBuilder®, can help inventors file high-quality patent applications quickly and affordably to meet the new timing requirements of the AIA. ProvisionalBuilder®, the industry’s most comprehensive patent-creation software. ProvisionalBuilder is designed for individual inventors, entrepreneurs, startups, small businesses, and universities that need to quickly draft and file strong, high-quality patent applications to protect their ideas and intellectual property. This powerful, expert-driven software guides entrepreneurs through the entire patent-creation process, enabling them to protect and monetize their intellectual property with a provisional patent.

“As the patent workflow software leader, PowerPatent is excited to see users benefit from our patent software,” said Bao Tran, CEO of PowerPatent. “PowerPatent’s software revolutionizes how inventors and entrepreneurs engage with ideas and information – anytime, anywhere, and through any medium.” With ProvisionalBuilder, start-ups are armed with the resources to capture photos of the actual invention or drawings thereof, document inventive ideas on the spot, and then file patent applications quickly.
