Can I use “patent pending” without having a patent application on file?

It is a violation of federal law to use the phrase “patent pending” or similar language improperly. Some forms of patent applications are very easy to file and can even be filed without the assistance of an attorney, or with limited attorney assistance so that you can be legitimately “patent pending” quickly, easily and inexpensively. Patent applications filed informally can be upgraded later to a higher quality form when planned correctly. If this strategy is of interest for you, ask Mr. Heisler about filing “provisional” patent applications.
