How Does a Patent Protect Your Invention
Once you’ve submitted a patent application to the USPTO for review, your application is a “patent pending.”
That means that if someone else tries to implement your idea, they can be sued for any damages that accrued after the date of the application filing. It also means that another inventor with the same idea or concept can’t come after you and get a patent for your invention.
If someone tries to steal or use your patented invention, a U.S. patent lawyer can file an injunction and pursue damages from the violator.
