In many jurisdictions outside of the United States, the publication or other disclosure of an invention prior to filing a patent application results in the loss of all patent protection. To avoid the loss of these critical rights get advice early on in the strategic filing process. Patent applications can be costly, considerably more expensive than a trademark or copyright filing, and the process of securing patent rights can take several years.
