For Inventors

Are you an inventor with a potentially patentable idea ... what can the i2s.biz Collaboratory do for you?
After you've taken steps to Protect Your Idea, Submit Your Idea for a Patent Search and/or Product Market Search. Your Search Report will contain prior art US Patents and/or links to existing similar products, if any, a viability narrative and viability score. With this information, you’ll know the State of the Art and/or the State of the Shelf, have patents to use in a patent application and know how to proceed, which are the goals. Our team has received many US and international patents... some have had very good commercial success, others not. The odds of new patent commercial success historically aren't very high ... less than 5% of patents make money, but even the not so successful patents bring mountains of pride and great resume references.  We can help you with a fair assessment of the potential for your invention, and connect you with resources to move forward with your intellectual property to apply for a Patent, Trademark &/or Copyright.  We can also develop a business plan for/with you, connect you with funding, workers and entrepreneurs to launch your venture.  Our system allows you to choose the amount of involvement in the venture you desire, from being a small percentage owner with little or no involvement while you live you life and letting the team run with it, to making this your full time life's career.
Goals for an Effective Patent Search:

a) Finding a patent that closely matches the current invention.  

            If one is found: stop working on idea, it’s already done, avoid spending more time/expenses

  Or: contact patent holder for licensing or partnership

  Or: design around claims, modify design to not be infringing

  Or: if closely matching patent is expired, proceed without fear of infringing

b) To have pertinent patents to use in patent application.  In “Background” section of your patent application, a description of the “Prior Art” will be needed, i.e. “US Patent 9,123,456 shows XYZ which doesn’t do ABC well and is terrible.  The current invention shows DEF which does GHI well and is wonderful.”
c) Get ideas for your patent application write up, drawings and design.
d) To learn how broad or narrow you will be able to make your claims.

e) To learn the State of the Art.
