Who is responsible for patenting?
OLV has a patent attorney on staff who may work with you to file a provisional patent application as well as assist in any other issues relating to patent prosecution. Generally, OLV contracts with outside patent counsel for IP protection after provisional application filing, thus assuring access to patent specialists in diverse technology areas. Inventors work with the patent counsel in drafting the patent applications and responses to worldwide patent offices. OLV licensing specialists and our in-house attorney will help with the selection and oversight of the outside patent counsel.
