The Disclosure Process
The disclosure process includes the following steps:
- Submit your disclosure
In most cases this includes completing the Invention Disclosure Form. If you are disclosing source code, use the Software Disclosure Form; if you are disclosing literary or artistic works, use the Copyright Disclosure Form. All of these Disclosure Forms are found on Inventor Portal
- INVO will evaluate the invention
Our team will consider a number of factors to determine if a patent will be pursued. Learn about these considerations, as well as the three possible results of our evaluation.
- INVO may file a provisional patent application
INVO will decide whether to file a provisional patent application within 30 days of the disclosure.
