Patent ideas

Have lots of ideas? Thinking of patenting them? Spend some time performing a patent search for each idea. This will quickly filter out those ideas that are not worth pursuing further.

You have three options: (i) use the links to the free online patent databases on our website; (ii) try our patent search software; or (iii) ask us to conduct a professional international patent search for only R9,950.

When you have identified the patentable ideas, select your best idea and focus on this one exclusively.

Start by calling us to discuss the way forward with one of our friendly patent attorneys. All our communications are confidential. The idea you selected may not be patentable. If so, turn to the next idea. We vet more than five ideas each day and do not charge for this service.

If your idea is patentable, we will prepare and draft a provisional patent application for R19,950 (excl. vat). All we need from you is a list (in bullet form) of your product’s features accompanied by a rough sketch (if available). Our industrial designer will prepare the patent drawings using your 3D CAD model. We will discuss your idea further with you and prepare a provisional patent specification. Two weeks later, the process should be complete, freeing you to disclose your invention publicly.
