One of the most important things inventors need to do is protect their intellectual property. If you believe your invention can be marketed, produced, and create an impact on consumers, it’s always best to get a patent. With that patent, you protect your invention from being stolen, produced, or sold by others without your explicit consent. Secure your invention, as well as potential profits, by applying for a patent.
The Mars Rising Network works with registered patent agents licensed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to help inventors through the entire patent process.

A Trademark protects your company name or product name by ensuring it is not in the public domain and is unique within any market or industry. By having a Trademark, you are the sole owner of your logo for instance which would encompass its font, style, color and design. It would also protect any one word as long as it is unique and not a part of the public domain. It would also include any combination of words as long as they are unique and not a part of the public domain.
A Trademark search should be done first to establish the uniqueness of what you need to be trademarked. Once that is performed then you are now ready to file your Trademark. A Trademark is very inexpensive compared to the amount of protection you will receive and what it can do for you and your business endeavors.
Patent Searches – Determine if You Can Patent Your Invention
The first step in the process is determining if your idea or invention is unique to the market. Experienced patent searchers can thoroughly explore issued patents and review drawing and texts to see if there are similar inventions to yours, and whether or not you should move forward with your patent application based on these results. Connect with our team to learn more about patent searches and how we can help you through this crucial step.
Patent Application Assistance – Which Application is Right for You?
If you are able to move forward with a patent application, the next step is determining what kind of patent you need. There are different types of patents, and you’ll need to apply for the correct one based on your invention. These include:
- Design Applications
- Utility Applications
- Plant Applications
The USPTO registered patent agents working with Mars Rising Network will be able to help you through this and draft your patent application if needed.
What is a Provisional Patent Application?
According to the USPTO, a provisional patent application is a type of patent application that can be used to secure a filing date while avoiding the full costs that come with filing and prosecution of a non-provisional patent application. Patent agents that work with Mars Rising Network can also assist with this application while the non-provisional patent application is being prepared (up to one year). The time between filing a provisional and non-provisional patent can be used to further explore whether the invention is marketable or has profit potential.
Patent Filing Services – Make Sure All Requirements are Complete
Once your patent application is complete, it will need to be filed. This can be a complicated and time-consuming process if not all required forms are properly filled out. The experts at Mars Rising Network have combined decades of experience in this area to make sure all paperwork and formal application pieces are complete, thorough, and filed correctly. You are not able to make modifications once the patent is filed.
