It’s the first thing that comes to everyone’s mind when they start working on any new product. A provisional patent application protects your idea for up to one year and allows you to label your idea as patent pending - an essential tool when marketing your idea and figuring out whether it will be profitable.

SmartIP is a new program from inventRight that makes the PPA process faster and easier than ever. You’ll be able to generate a strong provisional patent application without having to navigate the process yourself, or rely on an outside patent attorney.
