An invention can be protected as a patent or utility model. The patent owner enjoys an exclusive right to the protected invention. This means that the protected invention cannot be used without the owner’s consent. On one side, such protection ensures that competitors will not be able to take advantage of the costs incurred while the invention is in development. On the other hand, this enables the enterprise to obtain a return on investments in development by way of licensing or sales of the sole right.
The first step is to decide, where you want to protect your invention. Finding out the right territories depends on a business strategy and in which market you are going to sell your products. Just contact us and our experts help you find the most cost-efficient patenting strategy for your needs.
