Patent Provisional


The first thing to say is this: there is no such thing as a provisional patent. You can, however, file what is known as a provisional patent application.

A provisional patent application will never itself mature into an issued patent, but in the right circumstance (and done properly) a provisional patent application can be a very useful tool for inventors. This is particularly true now that the United States is a first to file country, which absolutely must be interpreted as inventors needing to file first before disclosing anything about their invention, offering it for sale or using the invention publicly.
