Can I Patent My Idea?

Article By Patent Attorney Stephen Bullock
Yes, with a little work. Inventions are patentable whereas ideas are not. The difference between the two is sometimes subtle. The standard that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) uses is whether a person having ordinary skill in the subject matter of the invention could read your description and recreate it. Oftentimes a patent application can take an idea and turn it into an invention. This is because a patent application must be detailed enough to enable the device. The application itself can force an inventor to think through the details of their idea and connect the dots that otherwise weren’t connected.
