Patents

A patent gives an inventor the right for a limited period to stop others from making, using or selling an invention without the permission of the inventor.

Patents are about functional and technical aspects of products and processes, and specific conditions must be fulfilled to get a patent.

Most patents are for incremental improvements in known technology - evolution rather than revolution. The technology does not have to be complex.

Patent rights are territorial; a India patent does not give rights outside of the India. Patent rights last for up to 20 years in the India. Some patents, such as those for medicinal products, may be eligible for a further 5 years protection with a Supplementary Protection Certificate.

Although there are potential pitfalls with patents, a patent can be of value to an inventor, and can also benefit other people. You can arrange, through a licence or sale to use another inventors patent. Additionally, large amounts of information can be learnt from other peoples patents.
