With a patent you can protect technical inventions such as:
- Products – e.g. a watch movement or new textiles
- Manufacturing processes – e.g. a new process for dehydrating food products.
As the owner of a patent, you can prohibit third parties from using your invention for commercial purposes – for example, the manufacturing and selling of patent protected products. You can do this for up to 20 years in those countries in which you have protected your invention.
But you can also trade your patent as you do other goods. For example, you can sell it or grant third parties rights for use of your invention (license).
