On our second episode of the Bold Patents Summertime Series, we get to grillin’! J.D. confesses that he is a novice when it comes to cooking on the grill, but thankfully Matt comes to the rescue with some great ideas and tips to help J.D. improve his skills.

Bold Bites Inventor: Tailgate N Go
This Shark Tank pitch aired earlier this month, and it fits right in with our summertime theme. The inventors, however, made a big faux pax while answering questions about their product. They claim to have a “provisional patent” for the Tailgate N Go. Our expert patent attorney, J.D., jumps to correct them. A provisional patent is simply an informal patent application. This is different from a non-provisional application, and it is certainly not a formally protected patent. The truth is that the Tailgate N Go’s patent applications have not been through a thorough examination at the USPTO to evaluate novelty.
Finally, Matt notes that there are no trademarks on file for the Tailgate N Go, so the company is at risk of either infringing on another mark’s rights and/or the company is not able to register a descriptive mark for their product and business.
