Nevada patent applications are applications that list either an inventor, applicant or assignee that has a Nevada address. These applications have been filed with and published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Although most applications are published, a small percentage (about 7% nation wide) are not published for various reasons. Patent applications are generally published 18 months after the first priority date of the application. Published applications have not necessarily been examined and a portion of application are abandoned after publication.
Nevada granted patents are patents that list either an inventor, applicant or assignee that has a Nevada address and that have been approved by the Patent Office.
