What is a patent and why do you need patent attorneys?
A patent as specified by the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property, also known as AIPPI affords you certain rights. Your patent attorneys will explain to you, that above all the right to exclude others from making, using, selling, offering for sale, or importing the patented invention for the duration of the patent.
A patent provides limited but essential property rights
A patent is a limited property right. The government gives inventors in exchange for their agreement to publish details of their inventions as part of the patent process. Your patent attorneys will advise you on your rights to sell, license, offer as security or transfer a patent, like any other property right.
A patent is usually a right granted to anyone who invents any new, useful, and therefore non-obvious process. This, for instance, can be a new machine, an article of manufacture, as well as the composition of matter. Similar rights, can also apply to industrial designs. A patent provides exclusive rights to an invention for the duration of the patent, therefor protecting an invention. This allows the patent owner to exclude others from making, using, selling and importing an invention.
In addition, Patents may also be obtained for new, inventive products or processes. Those products or processes may among others include computer-related inventions and even business and workflow methods. In addition, also, biological inventions, micro-organism, and other biological materials may qualify for patents.
