Smartphone Feud: Patent Assistance Worldwide Appeals to Inventors Amidst Apple, Motorola Skirmish

Share Article

As rival cell phone companies compete over patent rights, a company called Patent Assistance Worldwide appeals to inventors seeking to protect their intellectual property.

Though consumers often take them for granted, every technological detail of a given mobile device had to be invented by someone. Consider, for example, the familiar action of placing a finger on the screen of a smart device and swiping it to “unlock” the phone’s capabilities. TIME Magazine reports that this seemingly minor action, so familiar to so many smart phone users, has actually been the subject of intense legal battle between two rival phone companies, Apple and Motorola. TIME notes that a German patent court recently sided in Apple’s favor, ruling that many of Motorola’s patents actually infringe on Apple’s innovations. This case makes it clear that there’s no invention too small, and no inventor too large, to escape the complexities of patent law—but a company called Patent Assistance Worldwide can make navigating those complexities much easier.

While many inventors seek to protect their intellectual property rights by directly contacting patent attorneys, Patent Assistance Worldwide offers a unique business model that spokesman Mark Fallows says “makes patenting and marketing a product much easier and more affordable for the inventor.” The company refers to its model as a “clearinghouse,” where inventors can utilize the resources of a large network of copywriters, artists, draftsmen, researchers, and independent attorneys, all in the service of protecting and ultimately selling their ideas.

Fallows notes that the Apple-Motorola skirmish is a prime example of why the Patent Assistance Worldwide clearinghouse business model is so effective, and so advantageous to aspiring inventors. “What these highly-publicized incidents reveal is simply that, for the inventor, ensuring intellectual property rights is not always easy,” Fallows notes. “By using the clearinghouse services of Patent Assistance Worldwide, inventors can receive the legal or marketing services they need, and often save money in the process.”

Patent Assistance Worldwide is not a law firm, but it does offer its clients access to legal services at affordable rates. The company commences its services to a new client by listening to the inventor’s needs and goals, and creating a comprehensive action plan. Patent Assistance Worldwide can then put the client in touch with one of the independent patent attorneys within its network.

Patent Assistance Worldwide offers everything from professional illustrations to patent search assistance, research and documentation help, and even licensing negotiation. More information about these services can be found at
