Utility patents protect inventions that are new and an advancement on the current technology. A utility patent can be directed to any manufactured good or industrial process, based on the function or operation of your product. Utility patents can be obtained for everything from software applications to transmissions systems to pharmaceuticals and more or less everything in between. Approximately 90% of patents that are issued by the United States Patent & Trademark Office are utility patents.
