Utility Patent Approved

Ever seen ABC’s Shark Tank®?

A Shark will ask “do you have a patent?”

If the entrepreneur answers “yes”, without specifying more, the next question is usually, “which kind”?

That’s because there are two kinds of patents - a utility patent and a design patent.

A utility patent is superior - and therefore much more difficult to get - because it covers not only the design, but the way something works.
