Why does a Patent Status Matter?

Patent status is important to pay attention to as an inventor, applicant, and business. When submitting new patent applications, a prior art search can show what ideas are already in process that may be similar to yours. As an inventor, having a patent that can be found in an active application status can also help others to see your idea and deter them from developing a similar patent or idea. And while not providing actual legal security, having a patent in a pending status can discourage theft. As a business, knowing what patents are currently in an active status paints a clearer picture of the organization’s assets.
