General Information on Patents: Importance of Filing Applications Promptly

A patent application must be filed in accordance with the United States patent laws. One of the most critical requirements of our patent laws is that a patent application must be filed promptly. As of March 16, 2013, patents will be awarded to the first inventor to file a patent application for a particular invention. The patent laws of most foreign countries require that the inventor’s United States patent application must be filed before any steps are taken to make the invention available to the public through public use or publication. The failure to promptly file the application may result in the patent being held invalid.

In the United States, a one-year period is provided in which a United States application directed to a specific invention can be filed after that specific invention has been made available to the public through public use, publication, or placing the invention “on sale.” If you have any questions as to the relationship of your activities concerning the invention and these prompt filing requirements, you should bring them immediately to my attention, so that I can consider them and give you appropriate advice under the circumstances.

If you have any questions about any of these materials or how to proceed with obtaining patent protection, please contact me.

What I have seen in terms of personal computer memory is there are specifications such as SDRAM, DDR and the like, that must match up the specific features of the motherboard. If the pc’s motherboard is rather current while there are no main system issues, modernizing the storage space literally normally requires under a couple of hours. It’s among the easiest laptop upgrade types of procedures one can imagine. Thanks for giving your ideas.


I wanted to thank you for this excellent read!! I certainly enjoyed every little bit of
it. I’ve got you book marked to check out new
stuff you post…

Cool website!

My name’s Eric, and I just found your site – – while surfing the net. You showed up at the top of the search results, so I checked you out. Looks like what you’re doing is pretty cool.

But if you don’t mind me asking – after someone like me stumbles across, what usually happens?

Is your site generating leads for your business?

I’m guessing some, but I also bet you’d like more… studies show that 7 out 10 who land on a site wind up leaving without a trace.

Not good.

Here’s a thought – what if there was an easy way for every visitor to “raise their hand” to get a phone call from you INSTANTLY… the second they hit your site and said, “call me now.”

You can –

Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know IMMEDIATELY – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

Time is money when it comes to connecting with leads – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later can be huge – like 100 times better!

That’s why we built out our new SMS Text With Lead feature… because once you’ve captured the visitor’s phone number, you can automatically start a text message (SMS) conversation.

Think about the possibilities – even if you don’t close a deal then and there, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

Wouldn’t that be cool?
