Is filing a utility patent application cheap?

The process of protecting one’s intellectual property through the patenting process offers significant benefits by not only protecting inventions, but also in building value in exclusivity. However, it’s no secret that the patenting process can be costly which leads inventors to engage in a cost-benefit analysis concerning whether a patent is worth pursuing. So in short, a utility patent application is not cheap if you want it done right.

At a traditional law firm, a utility patent is typically $9–13k. This range can vary given the complexity of the invention, the cost of legal services in your locale and the overall patentability of the invention. Patenting software, for example, is so much more money than a mechanical invention such as a drink container.
