SmartIP makes it faster and easier than ever to file a provisional patent application with the USPTO


Protection. It’s the first thing on everyone’s mind when launching a new product or idea

The first step in protecting your idea properly is a provisional patent application. A provisional patent application, or PPA, protects your idea for up to one year and allows you to label your idea as patent pending – an essential tool when marketing your idea and figuring out whether it will be profitable.

SmartIP is a new program from inventRight that makes the PPA process faster and easier than ever. You’ll be able to generate a strong provisional patent application without having to navigate the process yourself, or rely on an outside patent attorney. Developedby patent attorney and law professor Gene Quinn, SmartIP gives you guidance and guarantees an easy, strong PPA.
