The simple answer is no: you cannot patent an idea for an invention.

The invention itself must be filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) or a patent application containing the invention must be filed.

Although all inventions begin with an idea, not all ideas can be called inventions.

What you can patent is an invention, a device, a product, a process, or a manufacturing device—something that didn't previously exist or a modification of something that occurs in nature.

The straightforward answer is no: you can't patent an idea a thought for an innovation.

The invention itself must be filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) or a patent application containing the invention must be filed.

Although all inventions begin with an idea, not all ideas can be called inventions.

It is important to understand the basic ideas about a patent, what a patent is, how to obtain a patent and when to apply for a patent.

Here are a few things to remember.

Products may come and go, but company names can last forever.

Ironically, even companies that specialize in branding--The Brand Consultancy, Brand Design, and Name Development--fall victim to this misguided approach.

The standard used by the USPTO in determining whether a name is descriptive is whether it describes an ingredient, quality, characteristic, function, feature, purpose or use of the product.

Since Amazon has no significance in connection with books, Amazon.com was able to expand into selling music, electronics and most every other kind of product under the sun, using the same company name.

Even if one avoids choosing a descriptive company name, there's another issue to consider: Some names are so common that they lack any real marketing strength.

Think of names like Strategic Solutions or Pro Express or Business Advantage for a consulting service.

Director of the US Patent and Trademark Office Michelle Lee resigned today, without explanation.

Lee, who has been director of the office since 2014, was a favored candidate by the tech sector, who thought she brought a balanced approach to patents.

She is a former Google lawyer and was one of the first corporate lawyers to speak out about the problem of so-called "patent trolls."

Lee took office at a time when the tech sector was at odds with the pharmaceutical lobby and trial lawyers over a proposed patent-reform law, which did not end up passing.

Leadership at the USPTO has been unclear since the Trump administration transitioned into power in January.

Early news reports said that Lee, an Obama appointee, would remain.

The drone system makes use of complex AI and sensors to detect when caffeinated beverages are required

IBM has patented a delivery system for coffee using airborne drones and complex artificial intelligence software.

The idea taps into the current popularity of drones as well as the company’s existing investments in AI.

In a 7 August filing with the US Patent Office, IBM describes several variations on the system, which could use cameras and biometric sensors to bring coffee to those who request it, perhaps with a gesture.

Alternatively, the drones could be outfitted to identify the “cognitive state” of office workers requiring refreshment, monitoring blood pressure, pupil dialation and facial expressions to judge how groggy they are.

Other factors that could be taken into account include data on potential users’ sleep quality and their meetings schedule.

We're sure someone will eventually find a solution to banish range anxiety, but we're not sure this is it.

The reality is that, possibly on a Monday morning, it files those ideas with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and, after a period of time, the USPTO grants Amazon the patent.

Some of those patents will be forgotten by the Seattle-based company over time and therefore never see the light of day, but as technology develops, others may eventually come to fruition.

It’s hard to believe Amazon’s “floating warehouse” will ever get off the ground, though this remarkable “beehive” drone tower seems a little more feasible.

As for the tiny “assistant drones” to help cops in their work, well, the jury’s still out on that one.

The drone would identify the car from a code on its roof, and then dock to begin the process of topping up the battery.

If you've read our coverage of the Electronic Frontier Foundation's "Stupid Patent of the Month" series, you know America has a patent quality problem.

Too often, applications get approved and low-quality patents fall into the hands of patent trolls, creating headaches for real innovators.

A recent paper published by the Brookings Institution offers fascinating insights into this question.

Written by legal scholars Michael Frakes and Melissa Wasserman, the paper identifies three ways the patent process encourages approval of low-quality patents:

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is funded by fees—and the agency gets more fees if it approves an application.

Unlimited opportunities to refile rejected applications means sometimes granting a patent is the only way to get rid of a persistent applicant.

However, rather than utilizing two separate displays, Microsoft’s latest take at a new computing form factor utilizes a single flexible display, according to a newly published patent application.

The hinge is also designed to prevent crimping and to support the display when the device is opened like a book.

Otherwise, the display area near the hinge may feel mushy when users are utilizing the touchscreen.

In this case, the role of the hinge is to provide support in order to deliver a similar tactile feel throughout the display, no matter where the user is touching the touchscreen.

“The hinge assembly can provide several features that facilitate the use of a single flexible display,” Microsoft said in the patent application that it filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and published on October 11.

“First, the hinge assembly can change lengths during rotation of the first and second portion to reduce stresses imparted on the flexible display.

The thumbwheel was the signature feature of BlackBerry s original handsets, and while touchscreens have made them mostly obsolete, the Apple Watch proves there s still a place for physical dials.

But is Apple finally planning to introduce that rotating crown to the iPhone or iPad?

A recently published patent suggests that the company might be considering it.

United States Patent and Trademark Office via Patently Apple

As spotted by Patently Apple, today the United States Patent and Trademark Office published a patent application from the company— number 20160216801—revealing the use of a digital crown on the side to facilitate scrolling, control volume, resize text and images, and other mundane tasks like locking or unlocking the touchscreen.

A wheel makes sense on a device like the Apple Watch whose tiny touchscreen can be completely obscured by fingers as they interact with it or a device like an older BlackBerry with no touchscreen at all.
