What are the rights granted by a patent?

A patent for an invention is awarded by the government to the inventor, granting the creator the right to prevent others from creating, using, or selling the invention without their permission for a specified time. When patent protection is granted, the innovation becomes the property of the inventor, and it may be purchased, sold, rented, or hired just like any other type of property or commercial asset. A patent gives you the legal authority to prevent others from utilizing your innovations. Alternatively, you might agree to allow others use it under certain conditions. A patent application also grants the right to sue and recover damages from those who may be infringing on the patent.

An inventor is not necessary to seek a patent in order to implement an invention, but once the innovation is made public, there is no protection against others exploiting the invention and you will be unable to secure a patent. The Intellectual Property Office does not verify that a patented invention is not copied by others. It is the owner’s responsibility to take whatever required steps to guarantee that an idea is not violated. Any concepts that have been ‘Granted’ or are in the public domain may not be reregistered.

Patent Attorney

Any innovation should be kept secret until it has been registered with patent application. Before any facts or descriptions are released, a confidentiality agreement should be signed. This does not apply to patent attorneys or other professional advisers or personnel who are assisting a member of the general public. This is automatically a confident scenario.
