What is a patent?
Patents protect inventions and improvements to existing inventions.
Patent is a monopoly right granted by the Government to exclude others from exploiting or using a particular invention. This exclusive monopoly granted by a Patent is provided in return for the inventor disclosing the details of the invention to the public. Therefore, the patent is a monopoly right which offers exclusivity to the patentee to exploit the invention for 20 years after which it falls to the public domain.
While filing a patent for your invention, there are several critical aspects to be followed especially in drafting the claims, which define the scope of the invention. Drafting patent specification is an art by itself, and requires the expertise of skilled professionals in this field.
