为什么建议“发明专利”和“实用新型专利”同时申请?

中国专利法中规定专利有三种种类:发明专利、实用新型专利、外观专利。我国专利申请有一个原则即是同一个发明创造只能申请一个专利。但为何有时候,知识产权顾问会建议你发明和实用新型同时申请呢?

1.易!实用新型专利比发明专利审查程序简单,易授权。

根据我国专利法,授予专利权的发明和实用新型,都应当具备新颖性、创造性和实用性。但《专利法》对实用新型的专利申请规定了比发明专利简化的审批程序,对实用新型只进行初步审查,而对发明专利除了初步审查之外,还需要进行实质审查。并且在专利的创造性审查过程中,发明专利需要具备“突出的实质性特点和显著的进步”,而实用新型专利只需具备“实质性特点和进步”。所以二者相比,实用新型比发明更容易获得授权。

2.快!先拿到证书授权,先维权。

发明和实用新型审查时的周期也相去甚远,实用新型专利从申请到拿到证书,顺利的情况下需要6~8个月。而发明专利在审查顺利的情况下,最快也需要将近一年多的时间才能拿到专利证书,原因是发明专利涉及的技术领域更广,而不同技术领域的审查周期差别较大,有的技术领域审查可能需要2-3年,甚至更久。

当你的技术形成生产线进入市场,不可能等个几年等发明专利授权,并且在发明专利申请审查期间的技术侵权并不容易界定,所以采用发明和实用新型同时申请的形式,先拿到一本实用新型的专利证书,即可用专利权合法维护自身的权益。

3.多!专利资助申领多,先减轻企业负担!

各地政府都有对企业和个人发明创造申请专利进行资助奖励,鼓励技术创新,同时申请发明和实用新型,在申请阶段就已经可以拿到一笔对于技术在资助奖励,当你拿到实用新型授权证书后,还有一笔实用新型授权的资助可以申领,可以先帮企业先减轻一部分研发费用的负担。等发明专利获得授权后,放弃之前获得的实用新型专利授权,领取发明专利证书,可以获得发明专利的奖励资助。即使放弃先前的实用新型,发明专利这笔资助更为丰厚,更能减轻企业对于研发费用的支出的负担。

3.多!证书多!

前文说到同一个发明创造只能申请一个专利,为什么会证书多?因为有的技术会涉及到机械机构以及其中的方法,当有的发明人申请这类型的专利时,可以将机械结构的改进以及其中涉及到的方法分开撰写权利要求,这样令二者的保护范围和权利要求完全不同,这时候,就可以同时获得两本证书。亦或者发明在审查答辩后,权利范围已修改的和实用新型完全不同,审查员也不会要求申请人放弃实用新型的证书,这样也可以获得多一份的专利证书。

总的来说虽然涉及到同一件的发明创造,但是保护的客体以及权利要求不同,审查通过后可以获得两本甚至更多的专利证书。

所以,当有知识产权顾问向您建议发明和实用新型同时申请的时候,请不要怀疑他只是想赚您钱,请细心听取他们的意见,最终做下您的决定。
