If you are looking to file for a provisional patent, here are some key advantages and disadvantages to keep in mind.
An applicant whose product is “in use" or “on sale" in the U.S. during the pendency period and who does not file the non-provisional application could lose the right to ever patent the invention.
Remember a provisional patent is not a patent, but is essentially a placeholder for a future patent application, but it begins the process of protecting your idea so that you may later patent it, and defend against infringment.
