MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - Jul 12, 2012) - Google is so ubiquitous, such an integral part of the average consumer's everyday technology experience, that it is hard to imagine the company ever infringing on the intellectual property rights of another, or committing a patent faux pas of any sort. A new report from Bloomberg, however, highlights the patent-related difficulties that even big companies like Google can face. According to the report, Google may be facing an FTC-commissioned patent probe over its Motorola Mobility unit. This news highlights the complex and rigorous nature of patent law -- and also underscores the need for patent services, such as those provided by Patent Assistance Worldwide.
In fact, Patent Assistance Worldwide spokesman Mark Fallows says that if Google can be faced with patent problems, there is simply no telling what an amateur or novice inventor might face. "The process of applying for a patent, and then seeing that your intellectual property rights are truly maintained, is difficult and unpredictable," says Fallows, in a new Patent Assistance Worldwide press statement. "The need for a good patent attorney is dire, particularly for new inventors -- and that is to say nothing of the need for patent marketing services, researchers, and so on."
Fallows and his company are proud to offer such services to inventors and patent-seekers. The company's ultimate goal is to deliver patent resources to those who simply wish to protect and even market their intellectual property. Fallows is quick to say, however, that Patent Assistance Worldwide is not a legal firm.
"Our company is not a law office. What we provide is sort of a clearinghouse of patent-related services and resources," notes Fallows. "Patent Assistance Worldwide maintains connections with top patent attorneys, and we can put inventors in touch with these attorneys, ultimately helping them save money even as they get the help that they need."
The company does not stop with legal services, either. Instead, Patent Assistance Worldwide seeks to provide inventors with access to everything they need to protect and market their bright ideas. "Whether you're seeking to get a patent or you have moved on to the marketing process, inventors can use all the help them can get," says Fallows. "That includes the services of patent researchers, patent illustrators, marketing professionals, and more. Patent Assistance Worldwide's clearinghouse of patent services can provide inventors with all of these different kinds of resources."
Ultimately, Fallows says the Google news shows just how vital these services are. "Getting a patent is tough, and even after you've gotten it, there are still all matter of legal complexities, to say nothing or marketing concerns," he says. "For the novice inventor, or even the seasoned pro, all of this can be very daunting -- but Patent Assistance Worldwide is here to help."
Patent Assistance Worldwide is a clearinghouse of services geared toward inventors seeking to protect or market their intellectual property. The company places clients in touch with professional illustrators, patent researchers, and patent attorneys, and typically offers inventors more affordable rates than traditional legal firms can offer.
