What is a Patent Right?
Pursuant to the relevant legislative and/or regulatory framework, a patent gives you exclusive rights over your invention for a certain period of time. Therefore, by registering a patent, you safeguard any rights that may derive from and/or related to your invention, prohibiting, simultaneously, any third parties, from making, using offering for sale, selling and/or importing a product and/or process, based on your patented invention, without obtaining a prior license and/or your permission. In other words, a patent safeguards your invention from being exploited for commercial purposes.
It is the task of your appointed Law Firm, following discussions, to prepare the relevant documentation and/or applications required, for the registration of a patent.
According to European Patent Convention (EPC), patents are granted only for inventions that are new, involve an inventive step and are industrially applicable.
