US Patent Process Overview
A typical US patent goes through:
1) an application stage, where initial descriptions of the invention is submitted to the USPTO;
2) an examination stage, where the contents of an application are examined by one or more examiners at the USPTO;
3) an issue stage, where any claims that survive the examination process are allowed and issued as a patent grant.
