QUESTION: Can I file for the patent after I made the product/invention public on the market? I have a patentable invention but I would like to test/validate it on the market first if there is any demand for my product. It’s a physical product for men who shave and have sensitive skin. Can I file for the patent after I made the product/invention public on the market?

ANSWER: Yes, if you file your patent application within one year after putting your invention in the public market.
