A patent is the title for industrial inventions and utility models. It is a powerful business tool for companies to protect their investment in research and innovation, to prevent anyone from exploiting the fruit of such investment without proper compensation, and to gain an additional source of revenue through the management of rights of use for that patent. Patent protection can prevent others from patenting identical or similar inventions and infringing the rights of use of the patented object. Holding a strong patent provides a remarkable legal advantage in any proceedings against those who copied the protected invention.
How to Apply for a Patent
The choice of applying for a patent must be carefully thought through. It is not always advisable to go through with the patent. Even if an invention can be patented, this does not guarantee that it will result in a marketable product or technology. Therefore, before applying for a patent it is essential to carry out a careful global novelty search and specific analysis: obtaining, managing and protecting a patent can be difficult and costly. Your application should be mostly based on the likelihood of obtaining a commercially viable form of protection, hence on the possibility that its potential market utilization may increase profits significantly.
