Yeah! I received the Patent on my bag design!
I just got confirmation yesterday that my application for my Patent on my travel bag design was accepted! What a great way to start off the first official business day of the new year. I am so excited! I had to wait longer than usual due to the Covid situation, but it couldn't come at a better time. I always say things happen at the right time and I definitely believe this.
The process was fairly easy. I made an appointment with a patent attorney to get his opinion first as to if he thought I could get a patent for it. He told me a Design Patent would be my best route and that he would just patent the two bottom layers because if we did the entire bag someone could design the top section to close in a different way and then I would not be protected. I thought that was great advice. Amazon adheres to this and will remove anyone else's product from their site that is in violation of your patent design.
