Utility Patents and Utility Patent Applications

Cooley GO

"A utility patent is a form of intellectual property that protects how the invention works and/or is used, i.e., the 'functional' aspects of the invention. For your invention to qualify for utility patent protection, it must be a machine, process or method, article of manufacture, or composition of matter. Abstract ideas, natural phenomena, and laws of nature cannot be patented."
