Patents

A patent is referred to as an exclusive right granted for an invention or discovery. It enables the owner to exclude others from making, using, or selling an invention for a limited period of years in exchange for providing the public with technical information about the invention. Nevertheless, the patent owner may permit other parties to use the invention on a mutual agreement. Patents exist to provide incentives and protection for the inventors by offering them recognition for their creativity and create the possibility of material reward for their inventions.

As mentioned above, a patent is only active for a limited time, generally 20 years from the filing date of the application. If it is expired, the protection ends, and an invention enters the public domain; that is, anyone can commercially exploit the invention without violating the patent law. Patents cannot be renewed. However, it is possible to file patent applications for improvements and modifications to prolong the protection. In this case, a patent attorney is significant for providing the necessary legal details.  

Patent Attorney

A patent attorney specializes in matters regarding the patent law, including assisting clients in obtaining patents, protecting the invention owner’s rights in litigation, and other matters related to the patent law. If you find yourself in a patent affair, considering hiring a patent attorney or lawyer, as a deep understanding of the subject is required.
