Patents and Designs

Patents

A patent is an exclusive right granted for an invention that prevents others from making, using or selling the invention. Patent rights are granted for a limited period of time, granting the holder exclusivity over the invention. In an increasingly competitive market, having a patent leverages the most value for your invention and thereby increases the value of your brand.
