A Provisional Patent Program Designed for Everyone

SmartIP makes it easy to protect your invention! It is a guided, online system that takes you through the process of creating a provisional patent application from start to finish with advice from a licensed patent attorney.

Educational videos, along with expert tips and advice are available at every step along the way. There’s also no rush, you can start, save, and resume creating your application at anytime.

A provisional patent application not only allows you to claim “patent pending” status with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, but it also establishes your priority filing date.

Your priority filing date is crucial to establish your ownership over your intellectual property and prevent someone else from claiming ownership of your invention. It will also be used if you decide to file a full utility patent, so get started on protecting your idea today!
