As of August 10th, 2018, TrustyTrunks no leak swim diaper cover is patent pending! This is very exciting. We have one year to convert the provisional patent into an application for a utility patent.
Here is some history, on June 19, 2018, I had my first meeting with a patent attorney to discuss the idea for a leak proof diaper cover. His opinion of patent-ability was favorable, so we ordered a patent search to learn if the idea was already patented. On July 19th, 2018, I learned that our patent search yielded a positive opinion from our attorney regarding our ability to obtain a patent on TrustyTrunks. So we moved forward with filing a provisional patent.
Gem of Wisdom: Patents are expensive, so weigh carefully if it is worth the money.
