Q. how do you reinstate an old patent?
A: You can't reinstate old patent. Here is the idea behind patents: the inventor discloses his invention to the public, and in turn the public (via the government) allows the inventor to keep others from making or using his invention for a limited time. After the limited time expires, everything in the patent becomes public property, and anyone can make or use the invention. However, if the patent has lapsed because of some screw up before the limited time period is up, then a patent attorney can make the necessary arrangements to get it reinstated.
Q. Is Hydra-Bore available to name a new product. Product is mounted on a Power Booster(tm) jets flow opposite direction.
A: No attorney on this site is going to give you a definite answer to any specific legal question, but "Hydra-Bore" does not appear to be listed as a federal trademark. So that is the good news. You have to be careful though. If the new product is something that the name suggests, namely, that it uses water to bore through a substrate, than the mark may be considered to be descriptive or suggestive, and thus not a good mark. You may want to talk to an attorney about how good of a mark it would be, if you should come up with another mark, or what steps you need to take to turn this into a good mark. Good luck!
Q. i have an invention idea that worked what do i do now ?
A: Congratulations on a workable idea! You should also be congratulated about worrying about patents now, and not after your product (or service) has hit the market, when it would be too late to patent your invention. To answer your question, you need to get a business plan together. Determine your price, margins, promotions, placement, distribution channels, production, etc. If you can are able to put a business plan together that works, then that will determine whether you need a patent or not. If you do need a patent, then you need to go see a patent attorney before you start making the product, offering it for sale, or selling it.
