What is a Divisional Patent

Rich Goldstein

Founder & Principal Patent Attorney

What is a Divisional Patent? 

What if there are two unique inventions in one patent application? 

When your patent application gets examined by the patent office, the patent examiner could find there are two different inventions in your application. They will cite the two unique inventions and instruct you to pick one. The patent office will then examine the one that you have picked, or “elected”.

(Before I forget, if you want to preserve your right to obtain a patent in 156 foreign countries with ONE application, Click here >>)

What happens to the invention you chose not to elect? Don’t worry! You can file a divisional application to make sure it’s covered.

By the way, are you a business focused inventor who would like to monetize your patent? 

The bad news is… Just because you come up with something new, and go through the process to patent your work, you are not guaranteed to make money.

It’s a hard pill for some people to swallow.

No one will beat a path to your door and pay you for your patent. If you want to make money with your patent, you need to make a plan.

The good news is you don’t need to reinvent the wheel to have a plan to profit from your patent. You can borrow from the approaches others have used to monetize their inventions… Regardless of whether it’s a design or utility patent.

Each monetization strategy has its own business model. In just minutes you will know the different ways you can plan to monetize and profit from your patent…
