Provisional patent application

Provisional patent application is a part of patent law that grants “provisional rights” to an inventor for up to one year, pending the filing of a complete and final application. A provisional patent application provides the means to establish an early effective filing date for a non provisional patent application, and allows the term “Patent Pending” to be applied.
