Types of Patents

The most common type of Patent is a Utility Patent. It can be obtained from the United States Patent Office for any new and useful process, machine, manufacture, or composition of matter, or any new and useful improvement thereof; that is useful, novel, and not obvious. It lasts for twenty (20) years from the filing date of the patent application.

The two other types of Patents are:

Design Patents – for a new, original, and ornamental design for an article of manufacture

Plant Patents – for a new variety of plant that asexually reproduces
