Definition Edit

U.S. patent law Edit

A patent agent is

an individual who has passed the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's (USPTO) Patent Bar, and is registered with the USPTO to prepare, file, and prosecute patent applications on behalf of his or her clients. Because most inventions are based on science or engineering ideas, the USPTO requires a patent agent to possess a background in either science or engineering before taking the Patent Bar.[1]
