    That’s nice that a patent agent will be able to give an art search report in 1-2 weeks. That’s pretty fast. I’ve always wondered how people make sure that they get patents for their inventions. It sounds like finding a patent agent would really be helpful.

    Thanks for the simple, clear definition of what a patent does and how it can help you. I like how you explained that patents actually help encourage innovation. I bet there are a lot of patents on chemical combinations, and that probably helps people to find more and more solutions to problems. Then, they can even file their own patents.
