Rex Miller, an associate in the Vorys Columbus office and a member of the intellectual property group, was quoted in a Super Lawyers story about the pros and cons of filing a provisional application for a patent.
The story states:
“‘Before disclosing a new invention to other people, it’s worth at least considering patent protection for it,’ says Rex W. Miller II, an intellectual property attorney with Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease in Columbus. ‘Once you’ve disclosed it, you may be giving up some of your options with respect to patent protection.’”
The story also states:
“‘I usually tell people a provisional patent application is only as valuable as what you put into it,’ Miller says. ‘There are two extremes: On one hand, you could sketch your invention on a napkin, mail it to the patent office, and you would technically have a provisional application on file. On the other extreme, you could fully develop the application as if it was a non-provisional application where everything is complete.’”
